Confession time, I have never seen an episode of Game of Thrones. Shocking, I know. However, I had to give these lemon cakes a try! Originally posted on Nerdy Nummies, these little cakes looked adorable and tasty!
Unfortunately, my original batch did not come out nicely…
Taste wise, they were okay, appearance wise not so much. I almost put this recipe on a do not try again list, but then I saw a video by ochikeron that made me want to try again.
After seeing this, I knew I had to try the lemon cakes again! Using the lemons from the honey lemon instead of putting them in sugar water. The results were perfect and made this a recipe a keeper.
The downside to this new way is that it will take four days to makes these. As the lemons have to soak in the honey for three days and dry for one day. So, this is not going to be one of those quick recipes. However, I believe it is worth it, especially over soaking the lemon slices in sugar water, because you can use the lemon slices afterwards but you can use the lemon honey mixture as a drizzle.
To get started I had to cut up my lemons and put them in a mason jar with honey. This is pretty easy, just layer it lemon and then honey. Repeat till the jar is filled up and shake it once a day for three days. After the three days remove the lemon slices and have them sit out to dry for 24 hours.
Then I followed the cake recipe from Nerdy Nummies. I really enjoyed how the lemons tasted in this batch and how they complimented the cake part. I would defiantly make this for a GoT fans or a showing!
