Notes

This cake was very popular in the mid 1970's. I got this recipe from my sister, Jeanne, who got it from our Aunt Marion. This is a moist, lemony dessert that is very easy to make. Great served with a dollop of whipped cream. You could easily vary this cake to orange or lime by changing the gelatin, juice, and zest.

A dash of local for every season
