I am absolutely infatuated with lemons. I mean, what’s not to love? They have the fresh fragrance of a warm summer day, and their daisy yellow hue can make just about anyone smile. Not to mention, lemons pretty much get along with any flavor. Well, almost; I guess they don’t really mesh too well with chocolate. But since chocolate is another one of my flames, I’d prefer to keep a nice distance between the two. Lest I cause any jealousy and lose affection for either (the horror!).
But back to lemons…. aren’t they just the dreamiest?
These waffles combine the crisp flavor of lemons with the fun crunch of poppyseeds… a timeless pair that never ceases to amaze me. Oh dear lemons, is there anything you guys can’t do?
While not super fancy, these cupcakes are sure to please the kids and adults in your life.
The recipe provides an excellent, almost “no fail” type of cake, while the frosting is over-the-top chocolatey. I think it’s the best chocolate frosting I have made so far, and it goes really well with this simple white cake. Honestly, the cake itself is just a tiny vehicle for all of that awesome frosting.
Instead of experimenting with my own GF flour mixture on these, I decided to use up the last of my GF Namaste Perfect Flour Blend. I just subbed the same amount where regular “all purpose” flour would go. This was my favorite generic cake recipe before going gluten free. Happily, it turned out really well using the Namaste flour mix.
Also, feel free to just skip the whole cake part and get right to the frosting. The cake is pretty darn good- but the frosting is where it’s at!
