I had a few lemons need using before they go dry; and when life gives you lemons, you have three choices. First, is to make a sour face. Second, is to make lemonade. And third, make Jamie’s Nan’s lemon drizzle cake.
This old-fashioned tea cake is actually the very first recipe I made from the book when I bought it a couple years ago. The cake is easy to make and it’s delicious. It is also very moist because after baking, it’s drizzled with lemon syrup.
I also have leftover minced beef from yesterday, not a lot, but just enough to make some meatballs for tonight’s meal, penne pasta with tomato and cream sauce and meatballs. I’m gonna use the same meatballs recipe from last night’s pappardelle. Adding a little lemon zests to the meat makes all the difference.
A friend whom I haven’t seen for a while is coming over for dinner later and I cannot wait to catch up.
Enjoy the rest of your Sunday everyone.
