So if you know me...then you know I am such a chocolate lover, such a chocolate freak, and that I am the girl who gets SUPER annoyed when a restaurant has no chocolate dessert options. Yep. That is me. I have my own chocolate drawer for crying out loud. So what am I doing with this lemon mint cake recipe for you today? Simple.
I am breaking my own "chocolate lover" rule! There are always exceptions to any rule.
Enter this recipe. Lemon and mint are a match made in mother nature heaven. What makes this extremely blissful is the touch of a good quality honey at the end then topped with a dollop of fresh whipped cream with one more final drizzle. See what I mean!
Perhaps you have tried a cake like this before. With a fantastic texture and simple, simple ingredients. In fact, I think that is why this is so good. Less is more. The texture and flavor are just right. I am NOT a big fan of a lemon dessert that is TOO overpowering. You know the ones I speak of. Well no need to worry on this one.
It is the PERFECT hint of lemon. Not too little - not too light - just right.
I love this cake too because it can be fabulous on its own (with no toppings) or you can really get fancy and add a good drizzle of a good quality honey or syrup (maybe agave!). I am all about the whipped cream though myself.
This recipe is what you make to impress, to entertain with and let them think you spent all day in the kitchen - but you oh so did not! Don't worry your secret is safe with me.
Talk about an easy cake. BEST PART- you should have everything in the kitchen right now. When I say EASY - I mean it.
Use all room temp ingredients to get a perfect cake.
Try to not use cold eggs.
Have butter ready for greasing the pan and flour ready for dusting the pan. This will make it super easy to remove.
- Can use other oil than olive (vegetable or canola) but I love how rich it makes this cake.
