Tips for making your sweet lemon cake easy

Here are tips to help you with the most frequently asked questions. Thanks also to those who share their own tips.

The recommended size of the mold: leave on 18 to 22 cm max, just to have a very high softness. Otherwise it will be flatter. Generally speaking, I work with mussels of this size to have very tall cakes.


If you use this basic recipe to make muffins, you will reduce the cooking time a little, 15 to 20 minutes should be enough, and remember to plant the blade of a knife in the center of one of the muffins after 15 minutes to check. If the blade comes out dry, without raw dough, your muffins are cooked


Your cake does not rise? Check that you have not forgotten the baking powder to start, if your dough is cold, the thermal shock will help to have more swollen cakes, so place your mold filled with raw dough in the fridge 15 min before baking if necessary

Facilitate remolding … Butter and flour your molds, or invest in a mold release spray that is more and more easily found in the pastry department. Also, why not have a circle of baking paper the size of your mold at the bottom? Remember, do not try to unmold the cake before 10-15 minutes after baking, it will stabilize.


Can we replace butter with zucchini? But absolutely! As in my chocolate zucchini cake, here grate a zucchini, recover 150 g of pressed zucchini (drain by squeezing in your hands). In this case, whisk eggs and sugar, and then add other ingredients. Also think of apple sauce, or almond butter, coconut oil, or a lemon yogurt to replace the butter.


A frosting for my lemon cheesy!! With the lemon softness, you will opt for a sugar icing which will compensate for the acidity of the lemon (lemon juice and icing sugar or egg white and icing sugar), or a chocolate icing: 150 g of dark chocolate + 150 ml of whole liquid cream, melt and smooth, let stand 30 min before spreading over the cake
