Yup, it's an 8" square Pyrex pan that I have had forever. (8" square is almost exactly the same surface area as 9" round.)

It looks perfect for a lot of things. I only have one pyrex dish and I love it. I think that is next on my wish list.

Alix--I use this pan (I actually have 2--one was my grandma's and is slightly shorter than mine). I always do variation #2 with the almonds in the pan before the batter, but I bet one could substitute lemon zest and lemon juice (fresh) to get a lovely variation of this (and could put it in a bundt pan, regular loaf pan, muffin tins). TaxLady--you have me craving almond cake!

I have one that I got at a yard sale eons ago. Baking for one, it is perfect. I think I paid the grand sum of a whole ten cents.

I forgot to mention that I didn't have any organic lemons, so I left out the grated lemon rind and the cake was still fabulous. I ate half of it by myself.

When I buy lemons and find that I am not going to be using them in the next week or so, I use my micro-plane and remove all the zest. I have a small container in the freezer and I add the new zest to it. Then when I need some, I take a couple of spoonfuls, soak them in a very small amount of warm water and use after straining. I also squeeze the lemons and freeze the juice in an ice cube tray. When frozen, they get added to a large zippie bags I keep in the freezer. Comes in handy for lemon curd, meringue pie, etc. Of course I always get the urge to make these when I don't have a lemon in the house. Lemons like carrots, onions and celery are items I like to keep on hand all the time.

I do have some lemons, just not organic ones. I usually only bother getting organic lemons when I know I will be using the zest.

Well, here I is Addie!
So this is where everybody's been.. Should have read this thread a long time ago.

Brought along instead of cat food ( They're going to be needing Statin medications real soon, I can see it now) a big ball of yarn and my GR. He just loves cats, has always wanted one. While they play I'll mosey around here. I can't have coffee in the afternoon. Hope a soda is acceptable drink here. That can easily be one upped somehow.

One of the critics just walked into the kitchen. Asked "What smells so good?" I told him ribs in the oven. His shocked look and question " WHAT NOT ON THE SMOKER!!!!? No dear I still have a b-day cake to make today.
These guys are too spoiled. They could have had hot dogs.

Munky.
