Lemon Buttermilk Cake

I was very uninspired by the internet this week.  Well, minus finding out that George Clooney’s wife is having twins.  George > Beyonce.  End of story.

But I was inspired by an excess of lemons and some leftover buttermilk in the fridge.  And with that inspiration, I baked a cake.  If there was ever a cake that deserves to be eaten at breakfast, this is it.  It’s light and bright and slightly sweet.

Does anyone else get a little anxiety when you pull a bundt cake out of the oven?  I mean, I pray to the bundt gods that it comes out beautifully while holding my breath and turning the pan.

And I always do a little bundt dance when it comes out perfect.

This weekend is rather low-key for us.  No real plans except a precious birthday party for our favorite one year old boy on Saturday afternoon.  But the weather is going to be GORGEOUS so I see a couple of long walks in my future and perhaps an adult beverage on the back deck.  I hope you have the best weekend ever – make it a little sweeter and bake a cake!

Cheers!

  1. Emily, that is a BEAUTIFUL cake! The first I’ve seen with scallops (?) on it, and to have come out perfectly!

    Love you!
