This cake was super simple – though I must have read only the part about it taking 5 minutes to throw together, and skipped the part about bringing the eggs, heavy cream, and melted butter to room temperature. I took the chill off the eggs by putting them in a bowl of warm water for a few minutes, melted the butter on a lower microwave setting, and the heavy cream – I was expecting company and just threw it in still chilled. It took about 8 minutes fewer than the shortest bake time (50 minutes).
The texture of the cake is like a pound cake, but so smooth. It slices up beautifully too. A friend was over while it was baking and thought it smelled delicious. Even if it is a pound type cake, the lemon adds a lightness to it. I know some of my fellow bakers found it bland or dry, but I didn’t find that at all. My husband, who is not a sweet eater, raved about it.
I would definitely make it again!
