Two and a half weeks ago my mom's new oven/stove was delivered. My mom hasn't had a proper oven for at least 5 years. My dad and I followed the instructions and burned it in--getting rid of all the greases and chemicals inside. My parents used the stove top----6 burners! But we didn't use the oven. I kept saying I was going to make scones, but didn't. Then I decided I wanted to make lemon cake. I had seen a recipe in my mom's recipe notebook. So lemon cake was the first thing baked in my mom's oven.
The cake was very dense and moist. I need to get the recipe from her and see if it makes good cupcakes too (I can remember most of it, but I'm not sure about the leavening). I made a small batch of frosting to go between the layers.....just butter, lemon juice, lemon zest, and powdered sugar.
