I’m not going to lie about it anymore. There are mornings that I’m on the go and it’s so simple to grab a piece of my Morning Lemon Cake and a cup of steaming hot coffee and be on my way. Who says you can’t eat cake for breakfast? I think people should eat cake all day if they want to. 

  • 18 Tablespoons Unsalted Butter (Softened)
  • 1 1/4 Cup Sugar
  • 1 Tablespoon Lemon Zest
  • 1 Teaspoon Vanilla Extract
  • 1 Teaspoon Lemon Extract
