I guess the three weeks holiday made my drive and mood to bake and cook back to its path again. That is so true, when I was away and didn touch any of this baking and cooking utensils really made me long for them. I just wished to come home earlier, so I could cook, and bake some of my fave cakes..and when the holiday over, I already put all my heart and soul back. Told my self, "oh..yeah, today AM GONNA COOK!!!, How I miss it". Well, I may be not a top one chef, not even a master in creating glamour dessert...but, I could proudly say that my cakes rarely fail to please my husband tounge...eeerrrhhmm...i may be saying little lie here..Ok Ok, my baking failed sometimes...but, who cares?? I love baking! and today, am gonna make this LEMON SOURCREAM CAKE...been telling myself to make this longggg before holiday but never materialized..til today!!
The sour cream, made the texture is moist...yeah, that's why I love this cake and give two thumbs up of the taste..
I imagine eating this cake for an elegant afternoon tea break....that'd be perfect!
