The cake baking thing is an exploratory experience for me, however, my newly found sweet tooth is very happy. Yesterday I made a yoghurt and walnut cake from the book "Crazy water, pickled lemons" by Diana Henry. The recipe involved a coffee, sugar and brandy syrup being poured over after baking. Directions to let it sit overnight were considered, but the sweet tooth won out....

Quite a coincidence!  I pulled out Crazy Water Pickled Lemons today and marked a couple of recipes to try.   Your cake looks lovely.

@David Ross,

I'm planning to try your lemon bars, which look wonderful. Assuming I use your recommended 9 x 9 pan, about how many servings do you think the recipe would make?  Thanks.

I made a half recipe of the lemon & ricotta cake from Diana Henry's Simple.  The recipe is available online here.

After doing the appropriate geometry calculations, I determined a 6-inch springform pan would be pretty close to half the surface area of an 8-inch pan. I got distracted and feared it was way over-baked due to the browning but after cutting a slice, it's still very soft and moist inside. If I do it again, I may drop the oven temp a bit. I used limes instead of lemons because my lime tree is loaded with fruit. Served with blackberries, candied lime peel and a wee glass of homemade limoncello (also made from limes)

Very nice and not too sweet!

I'm not David but I did make his delicious squares.  I cut it in 9 pieces but that was too big, although we did manage to eat them.  I think 12 would be good.

Thanks very much for that answer. It's exactly what I needed to know.

I made them again this weekend for Easter dinner, but I think I cut them too big.  I cut about 9 bars, but they are so rich I noticed folks take a few bites and stop.  I would recommend cutting it into 12 bars.

And along with a fresh berry on top of each bar, (I'm using raspberries right now), a nice dollop of whipped cream is great for a plated lemon bar.

My annual Easter cakes! One of them also served as a birthday cake - that one is a double egg surrounded by edible grass! Strawberry and green apple flavors - it was determined that it tastes like those little penny candy space ships we used to eat as kids or communion wafers....!

thanks for looking!
