A little lemon juice makes everything taste better. HELLOemon my Steemian friends all over the globe! Yes, even if everything's low, no problem let's get high with leh-eh-eh-eh-mon! Rofl. Let the smell of lemon ease the worries away.

"Hello! Welcome to Cookntell!"

This is recipe #53
Lemon Sugar Cake

Store Moving Insta Story 1_1.jpg

Today we're making this lemon scent cake that's so refreshing, simple and easy to make. I guess this recipe is so basic but it's the smell of the lemon that makes it so special. I always love the smell of lemon in the kitchen. In fact I always have it on the go for the shoot.

But today we're using it as the star ingredient and yes, I forgot to put slices of lemon on the background. That should make the photos pop.


Powdered sugar, cacao nibs and honey on top is a good way to trick your brain so your cake will not look boring. Lol. Coz for sure the eyes would look for something detailed, interesting and something that's very pleasing to the senses and it will signal your tastebuds and there you see yourself giving it a bite. :-)

Appearance and presentation is a trick but making sure your food itself taste good as it looks is important too.


Lemon and sugar sounds better together. Just like how peanut butter meet jelly. When it comes to naming my recipes, I just combine both the major ingredients together and give it a flowery nickname. Sometimes it's a simple name and sometimes it's complicated. :-D

Anyways, I wanna present to you guys my recipe for today and I hope you it. I shared a photo recipe below so feel free to grab it and pin it on. Enjoy!

Watch More of My Recipe VIDEOS!

I have to be honest with you guys. I don't really call it vain but I love watching my food videos. It feels like a meditation for me. It is basically the sound and art in the kitchen. The sound of the fork, the spoon, the knife, the cutting board, the water, the mixing, the squeezing, the blending and everything in it sounds like in a grand symphony: a kitchen live music. For me, it is just sooo soothing. It's the reason why I put audio on my videos so you guys can experience a different way to watch too. So I wanna share with you some of videos here:

I love the taste of lemon and eat fresh lemon with salt whenever I buy them. It should taste really good in a cake. Beautiful photos.
