In our house, we LOVE lemon cake including our two young boys - it is Mr 4's favourite cake and he is lucky because his Grannie makes the best one - well we think it's the best. Why not try it for yourself and let us know!
This cake is delicious served on it’s own or top with our yummy lemon curd cream (see below) and berries, or any good Greek yoghurt if you prefer.
