TWD - Breakfast-In-Rome Lemon Cake

 This week’s Tuesday with Dorie recipe is Breakfast-In-Rome Lemon Cake. Dorie developed this recipe to produce a cake which mimicked a cake she ate daily as a treat in Rome.

The cake is a lemon sponge made with oil instead of butter. Dorie’s beloved version was completely plain, but she suggests adding berries in summer. I added blackberries to my cake.

Dorie suggests that this cake be served with just a dusting of icing sugar. However, as it is nearly Easter, I adorned my cake with a lemon glaze and mini Easter eggs.

To see what everyone else made this month and what they thought of it, visit the LYL section of the TWD website.

Your commenting thing here on your blog is different and I'm not sure it's coming through. Your cake is so fun, I love the idea of decorating it up for Easter. This was such a great cake, we loved it and I'm already thinking about making it again. It's fun that you loved it and had such a great time decorating it.
