One Bowl Lemon Cake

This month, I decided to do something a little different.

I challenged myself to discover a super simple recipe that doesn’t require a mixer, or any fancy ingredient.

And so here you go. ANYBODY can make this cake. Unless you don’t have an oven.

All it takes is a bowl and a whisk.

If your darling is not a fan of sugar, then this cake is the deal. There is no cream on it, only some optional glaze, if you prefer to decorate the cake. That also means you can bring it anywhere, because there’s no cream, you need not be afraid it’ll melt.

The only thing you will melt is his heart! Now go whisk away, and tag me at @bobthebakerboy #bobthebakerboyrecipes if you really did try. 🙂
