I have just made the best lemon cake ever. Yes, EVER! 🍋 Oh, and it also happens to be the easiest cake recipe ever. Yes, even easier than my favourite chocolate brownies. No it didn’t think it was possible either.
Basically, it’s a lemon equivalent of the best chocolate fondant you can think of. It’s so moist and zesty and addictive you’ll never want to put your spoon down.
If you don’t want to get addicted, you should stop reading now. And you most definitely shouldn’t give this recipe a go. Don’t say I didn’t warn you!For 4 (reasonable) people (or 2 much less reasonable ones…), you’ll need:
100g of sugar
50g of melted butter
100g of almond flour
Zest of 1 lemon + juice of 1/4
Combine the sugar and the almond flour.Pour in the melted butter.Add the eggs.Mix it all together until well combined, then add your lemon zest and juice and mix again. Pour your batter in muffin tins (I used mini-loaf ones instead) and bake for 20 minutes at 180 °C. And that’s it.Eat them by themselves.Or you could top them with whipped coconut cream…Look at that! SO MOIST!!
Speaking of chocolate fondant, I start to wonder how those would be with a lemon curd insert in the middle?
I say delicious, what do you think?
