Lemon Cake Tea

Have you all been able to tell I have become enamored with tea?  I have.  I always knew I liked it but, I really like it!  I had a bag of lemons from the grocery and wanted to try a lemony dessert. 

I tried two lemon cakes the day I made this and one was a English recipe.  The English recipe didn't turn out for me so I came up with a recipe I knew would work and that is Ina Garten's Lemon Pound Cake.  I will share the recipe tomorrow.

This sweet little teacup was made by Gracie's China.

Having a refreshing pot of tea with a lemon cake for a new spring day.  Such a lovely way to begin the season!

Bonjour chère amie,

Je ne peux m'empêcher de penser à ma meilleure amie, ma soeur partie trop tôt malheureusement et qui adorait mon gâteau au citron. Dès que je pouvais je lui en faisais un... Il est vrai que depuis qu'elle n'est plus là, je n'en ai plus fait...
Je devrais m'y remettre.
Votre publication va créer le déclic !!
Elle serait heureuse d'entendre ça !
Donc aujourd'hui je vous dis un grand merci !... je viendrais bien déguster le vôtre qui me semble bien sympathique.
Merci aussi pour vos généreuses photos.
Gros bisous

Hello Sherry,
What a lovely tea time! Your lemon cake looks so lovely and delicious! You did a wonderful job on it. The Gracie tea cup is sweet. That is a nice company. I have several of their china.
I hope you are having a great spring time.

Hi Sherry,
This looks so beautiful AND yummy! I've just finished Susan Branch's book about her travels through the English countryside and my interest in tea has been renewed! A good cup of tea is wonderful and a little treat to go with it, even better :)
Happy spring to you!
