Expert Tips

  • If you don’t have a cast-iron skillet, you can use a 9-inch round cake pan.
  • Rub the lemon peel into the sugar with your fingers. This will release the oils in the lemon, adding even more lemon flavor to the cake.
  • This recipe is incredibly versatile. It is just as delicious without fruit, but also good with any fruit in season. Try fresh raspberries!
