Oops she did it again! Great Cakes by Carole Walter delivered yet another mouth watering cake! This month the Cake Slice bakers baked Lemon Velvet Squares. A light fluffy cake with a hint of lemon, drizzled with a fantastic lemon glaze! And in case you didn't know I LOVE lemon cakes! There is just something about the freshness and citrus flavor combination that makes me go crazy! Plus when you pair it up with butter its just heavenly!
I had no problems baking the cake or releasing it from the pan. Some of our Cake Slice bakers had a little trouble with that. I made sure I greased my pan well and gave it a dust of flour. I absolutely loved the batter! It was really incredible, the butter and citrus flavor were perfectly balanced. The cake turned out light and fluffy, and had only a light/hint of lemon. You almost could not taste it was there.
In the future when I make this recipe again I will make sure I double the zest in the cake batter if I choose to just not to make the glaze. But other wise the glaze balances out the cake and my honest opinion the glaze is what makes the cake. I used lemon zest in the glaze and left out the vanilla.
It was perfect the whole family enjoyed it. We all had a slice for lunch since we had a late breakfast. I'm going to make sure my kids finish the cake later this evening, I don't want this cake left in the cake keeper, it's only going to tempt me to
devour the rest grab another slice!
