My sister's lemon tree in full bloom on  8/6/2015 in Melbourne.
This citrus really bloom very well in winter time. I remember that  I brought back over 20 lemons during  one of my trips!   And over here, the market is selling RM1.00 per lemon!
My neighbour went to Australia for holiday and gave me these  home-grown lemons from her friend's garden. The recipe only use around 2 lemons.. for the zest and 50 ml of lemon juice. The recipe is adapted from No-frills Recipe blog.       

I added about 2 tablespoon of poppy seeds to the egg yolk mixture. Egg white is whisked to a stiff peak before folding into the egg yolk mixture.

Bake at 170C for around 45 minutes.  The aroma of lemon filled the house while baking.
 I took  a quick photo before inverting the cake  upside down to cool. 

The cake  was tall - no shrinkage at all !

The cake crumbs looked fine and it is actually very light and soft.  Taste? citrusy, very refreshing and not too sweet.  Definitely a keeper....

This morning we went for breakfast at Tommy Le Baker ......  

Since our last visit in February, they have moved to this new shoplot... just behind or is front of the old place. The premises is more spacious with  more seating and bigger workplace behind the counter.  

I asked about the flour and the staff told me that they used Malaysian Atta flour.. emm shall I try it?

As we were in the vicinity of Sentul, after our breakfast Sarah drove us to visit d7@Sentul East and the Capers, the twins building......"the curvy design was inspired by nature where nothing ever conforms to a straight line"  and the buildings are "positioned from afternoon sun and also from each other" which offers more privacy."  but I did not manage to get a good photo of them..

Courtyard in  d7 @ Sentul East .......

  1. The lemons are always over RM1 each but they are dirt cheap in overseas. The locals charge higher as these lemons can last longer than apples or cherries.
    I love the colour of your cake and I bet it tasted very good.

  2. Good morning,
    I think lemons in demand nowadays... everyone is drinking lemon water to combat cancer...
