so fresh, zesty and flavorful.
One of my very favorite fruits in the citrus family is the Meyer Lemon.
Such a classic, that adds an incredible flavor to salads, dressings, entrees and of course desserts.
I made a little Lemon cake today, it is a great recipe and whips up so fast that I felt it was
a must to share the recipe with you.
It is a cross between a bread and a cake with a buttery, lemon infused flaky consistency.
You may already know the scoop on this precious lemon but if not, here are some
The Meyer lemon is a slice of sunshine, and in 1908 Frank Nicholas Meyer brought this little
fruit back from his visit to China.
It is an orange, yellow fruit with a sweeter taste than it's cousin the lemon.
The Meyer lemon is thought to be a cross between a mandarin orange and a lemon.
There is one thing I know for sure, it tastes wonderful and was totally the perfect lemon for
this tasty treat...promise.
And of course a cup of tea!
