Asian dishes seldom make use of lemon. It’s often used as garnishes or in drinks, but not as a main player. However, in most part of Asia, lime or kaffir lime – both leaves and fruits – are used a lot in cooking. So it comes as no surprise if I don’t fall in love with lemon. I never thought of cooking something with lemon, not even lemonade.
When I first moved to San Fransisco, I noticed a lot of bakeries use lemon as their main ingredients. It’s like a lemon celebration – from lemon bars, lemon cookies, lemon pies, lemon everything. Initially, I couldn’t understand what all the fuss about and would say to myself, “Lemon whatever. I’m just not that into you.”
However, one day my ex-boss told me that her sister loves lemons so much. After hearing his story, I became curious. So I picked some up at the closest bakery and was determined to give it a try. One bite of lemon bar turned into two bites, and then I suddenly realized how much I enjoyed eating the lemon bar. I know it was kinda late to fall in love with lemons, but I can proudly say that lemons and I are now BFF, forever and ever. The End.
And this cake… let’s just say I made this cake as a token of my love for lemons. The ingredients are simple and you can find most of the ingredients in your pantry, and lemons… they’re the main player in this dish, so be sure to use good fresh lemons for this bundt cake.
