Lemon Velvet Cake.

Hello everybody.

ً Went out to celebrate my friend’s birthday this morning to the Boulevard-Abdali ,first time for me to go and I was really impressed, beautiful place and scenery, didn’t expect it to be like this.

Birthday cake was a new recipe “Lemon Velvet Cake ” very similar to the red velvet but with lemons, really delicious and fresh,will definitely be on my favorite list.

Ingredients and method :

# 3 eggs.
# 11/2 cups suger.
# 1/3 cup margarine or butter.
# 2/3 cup vegetable oil.
# zest and juice of one big lemon.
# 1 tsp lemon essence (optional)
# 1/2 cup yogurt.
# 1/2 cup milk.
# 1 tsp vanilla.
#3 tsp baking powder.
# 3 cups flour.

Frosting :
# 3/4 cup butter.
# 2 cups icing sugar.
# some lemon zest.
# juice of half a lemon.
# some milk.
Note: I think next time I’ll make cream cheese frosting with lemons it’ll be better, this one is good but too rich in butter.

#Beat oil, butter and sugar till creamy then add eggs, yogurt, milk, vanilla.
#add lemon zest and juice.
# add baking powder and flour.

# pour batter in two small round oven pans.
# bake in a moderate heated oven for 35-40 minutes or till dry from inside.
# leave to cool then assemble two cakes with frosting in between and all over.
# decorate with lemon zest or roasted coconut.

Happened that I have two chocolate decorations one for a girl graduate and the other a boy which were so convenient cause my friend has both occasions for her children aside from her birthday.

Congratulations lovely Fufu and many happy returns.
