The Best And Easiest Lemon Cake Recipe

Baking is a hobby of mine. There are months where I will bake every weekend while others where I will not bake at all. The same happens with reading: some months I read up to eight books while some others I will just manage two. As a bake more and more however, I try more recipes and get bolder with all the baking challenges I set myself. Even though I do still enjoy going back to recipes my mother may have introduced me to, like this  chocolate cake recipe, I like to wander on my own baking path  as well. As a lover of all things lemony, and after giving you a recipe of  my favorite lemon meringue pie, I decided to stay one with lemons and moved onto the best and easiest lemon cake recipe ever.
