Harvesting Improved Meyer Lemons today. The greenhouse smells amazing from the fresh citrus here in Ohio. Can you believe it is winter and we are enjoying fresh citrus?
I’m going to use them in this yummy recipe for a sweet dessert to celebrate the weekend. Nothing beats the taste of fresh lemons…… you’ve got to try these in your home garden not only because they are tasty but because it is a beautiful plant to grow.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Butter a 10-inch cake pan.
In a large bowl, whisk together the eggs, sugar, Gaea olive oil, milk, liqueur, orange juice, and lemon zest. Sift together the flour, baking soda, baking powder, and salt. Mix the dry mixture into the wet mixture.
Whisk until well blended. Fold in the almonds.
Pour the mixture into the buttered cake pan. Bake for 1 hour. Place on a rack to cool. Run a knife around the edges and place it on a plate. Sprinkle with powdered sugar and serve.
