Top Review by Mirj2338

Do you believe in fate? My daughter, whose name is Sara, requested a lemon cake for dessert for Friday night dessert. Sarah's Lemon Cake showed up in the list of new recipes on Friday afternoon. This cake was meant to be! It was delightfully lemony, and does not make a huge amount, so every crumb was devoured by our 6 member family. I don't have a scale to measure the ingredients, but do have a very handy measuring cup that has the various weight measurements printed on the side, for flour, sugar, salt, etc. Thanks, Jan! BTW, I'm renaming this cake after my daughter Sara, hope you don't mind me losing the H ;-)
