i made this recipe this evening. i too did not like the cake part. too coarse for my taste. you may be onto something with the lemon cake recipe. i would just leave the lemon zest in it. will let you know if i want to make another right away.

If you make it before I do, let me know.
I am itching to make "Scalloped Pineapple" again. I bought some sourdough bread tonight. I might try that. I think the fact that it is a heavier bread it might stand up better then the store brand cheap bread I used last time. I will let you know.

Tonight I made "French Bread Rolls to die for". I added a egg white wash and sprinkled on some dried onions.

I baked these for the third time with a few minor tweaks - insanely good!

I'm going to be making jello poke cupcakes for the bf's poker game. I have leftover crab dip for them from a party over the weekend (I made a double batch and saved half on purpose), and I might put out some cheese and crackers or something too

I have made the poke-cake often, but never thought to make poke-cupcakes! Thanks for the idea. Another good one to make with the grand-kids. I hope I can get together with them soon. I am getting so many new ideas!

The cupcakes turned out great! They didn't have cake mix at the convenience store by my house (my bf took my car to work because he is getting his fixed) so I made the cake mix from scratch, used strawberry jello, and cut up some strawberries I had in the freezer (1 cup for 12 cup cakes). The thing that I thought was outstanding though, was the frosting. I had some regular white, vanilla frosting leftover from frosting sugar cookies over Christmas, and I mixed it about half and half with home made whipped cream. I whipped the cream so it was pretty thick. It is amazingly delicious. Soft and fluffy, but with more of a frosting flavor. To die for!! I think this is my new favorite frosting, and I was just trying to use it up ha ha
