    stormylee's Note:

    An old Finnish recipe that produces a delicate, slightly crumbly cake with a lovely, mild lemon flavour. This is the original recipe - I sometimes add 1/2 ts of lemon extract and 1 ts of vanilla for deeper flavour.

      Lemon Balm was the first plant to pop out in my herb garden this spring so I was very happy to have a use for it (other than as a garnish for iced tea). This is both a pretty and delicious cake. It would be nice with afternoon tea or a bridal shower. I did as you suggested and added lemon extract and vanilla. Wonderful cake stormylee!!
