Meyer Lemon Cake

This cake is a simple lemon cake inspired by Dom's Mums Lemon cake I just used Meyer lemons. I love these lemons and only really got hooked on them since moving to America. Its not just me who loves these lemons but Ozoz from Kitchen butterfly made a wonderful bunch of recipes with them I especially love this one Chunky Meyer Lemon Caramel Sauce  and she also wrote a wonderful post dedicated to them, did you know they are named after Frank Meyer, an employee of the U.S. Department of Agriculture who brought the fruit to the United States in the early 1900s, after discovering them in China.

  • 4oz butter 
  • 6oz self raising flour

Have a sweet start to the week everyone, today we had the Joy of seeing our sweet babies singing in the church as part of the pre school spring program, adorable. This is the last week of pre- school in fact the school is closing due to lack of enrollment. Pine Groove Weekday school has been a blessing to our family, the teachers are truly wonderful and really care for the kids. It's so sad wish I could have found the kids to enroll, give a teacher a hug this week, they enrich our children's lives and plant seeds of self worth and learning truly priceless.
