Weekend au Citron

1 Apr

Today I baked Weekend au Citron (Lemon butter cake).

Like its name, this cake is originally baked on weekends. The shape is normally in stylish square with lemon flavoring glace a l’eau (icing)  and pistache (pistachio) coated on top. I wanted to make it in square shape as well, originally was going to flip over the cake before the coating, but since the cake grew nicely into a mountain shape, I decided to just keep it this way.

The icing – Glace a l’eau – is very important for this cake. It gives the cake its lemon flavoring. This refreshing cake also goes well with coffee!
