Blogging Marathon# 27: Week 3/ Day 2 Theme: Seasonal Dishes - Spring Dessert Dish: Meyer Lemon Bundt Cake Spring reminds me of Easter, colors and lemons, exactly in that order. I know lemonade is great for summer, but hearty desserts with lemon are excellent for Spring as well, me thinks. Bright, lemony desserts are the perfect way to end a Spring or a Summer meal. So today I have a lemon cake that is just oozing with fresh lemony flavor.
