Ingredient Tips

  • If you don’t have a 10×15 pan, place the lemon cake on 9×13 pan Extend another 5-10 minutes, just make sure to put it under the watch and check with a toothpick.
  • Egg yolks need to be at room temperature, Because they perform better in the mix and thus provide more volume.
  • If you don’t have “cake flour”, you can make your own all-purpose flour and cornstarch. Add 2 tablespoons cornstarch to a 1-cup measuring cup. Fill the rest of it with all-purpose flour. Then put the ingredients in a small bowl and whisk them together thoroughly.
  • if you do not have cheese You can easily make your own.
  • enthusiasm It is made by grating the rind of a piece of citrus, in this case a lemon. You can buy a citrus zest, but the small side of a cheese grater will work too.

store leftovers

cover and shop 5-7 days. In the past, if there wasn’t enough glaze, the cake would dry out, or if there was too much glaze, the cake would get too wet and fall apart.
