I took my recipe from the Dorie Greenspan book Baking: From My Home To Yours (of course I offered a few remedies to the original recipe). I have found this baking book to be a great starting place for baking ideas. Most recipes are unique and nearly everything I take from it comes out delicious. The Swedish visiting cake permeates with almond flavor which lemon zest really enhances (and I hope I have already expressed my love of citrus).
However, being in a new environment my baking clock was not properly adjusted. The cake was slightly under-baked but both Sam and I discovered it was still delectable! After our delicious (and organic) meal we indulged in the cake accompanied by a few cups of coffee.
