Lemon Pudding Magic Cake

How about trying this lemon pudding magic cake? It is a perfect taste of spring. I bought a huge bag of lemons the other day for $1.99 and now are trying new things to use them up. This recipe is a keeper. The only thing I would do different next time is to bake it in a 8 x 8 pan instead of the larger pan you see below the recipe. This cake as it bakes makes a creamy lemon pudding layer and a tender and the lightest cake ever on top. I can see this in a summer ice cream also so don’t be surprised when you see it come back this summer.

So I have a couple different pictures today because I took out my macro lens a few days ago and have discovered I love it for food pictures. There is such a learning curve to taking pictures of food. It is an art by itself and I really am envious of some of the food bloggers out there who do both so well.

For me it has always been easy to make food taste good and look good but the camera definitely doesn’t see it the same way I do. I am discovering that one of the hardest things to do is to make a photograph make you want to run into the kitchen and make what you are looking at. That’s my goal when take pictures and I am trying very hard to get better at it.


You can see this is not a very thick cake but it is really good especially warm.
