Lemon Cake

Lemon Cake
Again it was nice to be able to pick lemon balm  in the garden. I had bought organic lemons, and they don't keep for very long, but usually it is a better buy to take three at a time. Sometimes I freeze the juice in ice cube trays, but this time I  used some in a lemon cake.

When the cake has cooled you make the icing. Pour lemon juice little by little in the icing sugar while stirring. When it has the right consistency, you put it on the cake.
