Lemon Mint Cake

The only cake I used to bake was chocolate cake and then I got married 🙂 Like most wives I like to cook what my husband likes more and to my surprise he doesn’t like chocolate cake although he can eat chocolate the whole day! That’s when Lemon Cake was introduced to me and to twist it up I added one more of his favorite .. mint.

The important thing to remember about this cake is too much of lemon or too much of mint will totally spoil the cake. Please note if you follow my measurement it will bake a 1/2 kg Lemon Mint Cake.

    Hi Kankana, love the look of your blog. Surely technical support is much needed. And just like you, my husband also dislikes chocolate cake, so let me give this one a try.
