Meyer Lemon Cake

I've been "forced" to endure chocolate desserts since before Valentine's Day! I have been a good girl and baked chocolate treats for others. I don't eat them! I've been craving a light, springy dessert that I will LIKE! I decided to make this for today's book club pot luck lunch (with a slight variation).


Meyer Lemon Cake with Lavender Cream

I followed the recipe using Meyer lemons for both the cake and filling. I also used some of my tangerine olive oil for part of the olive oil in the cake. It looks great.
I did omit the lavender, and used Italian lemon honey and Meyer lemon zest for the whipped cream. I can't wait to try it. I will let you know how it turned out!

Mmmm...looks good. My favorite desserts are apple, chocolate and then lemon but the lemon is relatively recent thing. It's just so refreshing.

Sounds delicious, I bet it was a real hit with the group.


ANYTHING lemon wins my vote, Palma. Looks great.
