    Countrywife's Note:

    I needed SOMEthing sweet for an afternoon snack and modified a shortbread recipe to come up with this. It's not chocolate, but I have used vanilla instead of lemon, omitted the peel and added about 1/2 cup chocolate chips because that was the only chocolate in the house. This is a fairly dense, hearty cake

      I made this cake to serve with some starwberries and blackberries I got for a good deal. I omitted the lemon, substituted w/ vanilla. It was a really wonderful cake to serve with the berries. It was moist but has a nice chewy crust (sounds weird, but it was great!) The only reason I gave it 4 stars instead of 5 was because I could taste the baking soda. Not sure why? It doesn't seem like too much for this recipe? This cake held nicely for the next day, too. I wouldn't have had any left except I stashed 2 pieces to take to work to share :)

      This a dense and tasty little snack cake. I omitted the nuts and lemon peel as I was using it as a small cake to celebrate my youngest son's bithday. I just wanted a small vanilla cake and this fit the bill. I frosted it but next time I will not as it is sweet enough on it's own. Next time I may cut back on the butter alittle. Thanks for the easy and delicious recipe.
