Ok, I'm really grasping at straws here for a beginning to this blog post. This may not be my best segue ever, but I'm doing it anyway.
I've been loving lemons lately. So when I saw a recipe for Citrus and Olive Oil Cake I knew I had to try it!
Something went a little wrong when I made this cake. I'm not quite sure what it was? I may have not beaten the sugar and eggs enough, or I may have put a little too much baking powder in. All I know is my bundt cake did not "rise" to the occasion...but thankfully I didn't mess it up enough for it to taste bad. It actually tastes really good.
