Expert Tips

  • 1 medium lemon yields about 3 tablespoons juice and 2 to 3 teaspoons grated lemon peel.
  • Serve each slice with whipped cream or vanilla ice cream for an extra sweet touch.
  • If you’re looking for a stronger lemon flavor, try experimenting with adding a little extra grated lemon peel to the cake.
  • For a whole new look and flavor, try experimenting with different spring berries. Blueberries or sliced strawberries are a great place to start.
