Meyer lemon season is in full swing here in San Francisco and my colleague gifted me a bag full. When life hands you lemons, you make lemon olive oil cake to say thank you! I got a couple bottles of delicious medicated olive oil from Pot d'Huile to use for this recipe but you can also easily make your own with this Sous Weed recipe. Immediately after this post, I'm kicking back with an iced coffee and a slice of this fragrant lemon olive oil cake and enjoying the rest of my Sunday. Have a good one, all!
