Today’s lemon buttermilk cake recipe is a simple but yummy cake that will feed a crowd. I found it on the good old Betty Crocker website. I love recipes that use my jelly roll pan especially when I need a treat to feed a big group. I must say that my hubby is not a fan of lemon desserts. However, I got him to give this one a try and he was going back for seconds. The lemon in this lemon buttermilk cake is not overpowering. It’s just a pleasant little fresh taste of lemon in a deliciously sweet and moist cake. If you need any other sweets that will feed a crowd, here are my favorites!
I wanted to give you all a heads up that starting Monday, I will begin sharing my experiences from an event I went to called ” Baking with Betty”. And yes you guessed right, it was the big Betty, Betty Crocker. I will have 4 days full of what I learned and what I tried. I must say that I did come home crashing from a sugar high. I did it all for YOU though (he he). I had to sample all those sweet sensations so I could share it all with you (he he). So be sure to stop by next week for all the details.
