Lemon and orange cake a la Martha Zwerg
February 3rd, 2019 | bread & pastries
Sometimes the simplest recipes are the best and quite often these are the old family recipes. So it is with this wonderful lemon and orange cake. Quickly prepared, let it steep overnight and it is as juicy and as fruity like no other cake – just perfect!
The recipe comes from the mother of my beloved captain, and she got it from the old “Cookbook of the Practical Housewife” by Martha Zwerg (No kidding about the name, it means “dwarf”). Today, our daughter is baking the lemon and orange cake. And so this recipe will probably make it into the next generation…
By the way, the dough is also perfect for muffin molds!
