FP Light Lemon Cake (Gluten, Dairy, and Sugar Free)
Our daughter turned seven a few weeks ago and when I asked her what kind of cake she'd like, she replied, "I'd like a white and lemon cake...that's not too sweet!" This may sound unusual for a six-year-old, but we haven't had sugar in our house since before she was born and she'd rather have salty treats than "sugary" ones. Although she's never been a big desert eater, I wanted a birthday cake that she'd actually enjoy. Since we have a number of dairy allergies, I was also looking for a cake that was dairy free. I came up with this recipe and we were actually quite pleased with the end results. I used up the egg yolks to make a delicious lemon curd that I iced it with. The birthday girl actually ate a whole piece! Score!
I plan on making this cake again...especially in the spring when fresh strawberries are in season. Yummy!
