This sunny cake is coauthor Victoria Pearson's go-to dessert. "I always have a surplus of citrus," she says, "and it's super-easy." The inspiration was an old French recipe that used oranges--but she swapped those out for lemons. "The sugar syrup you make with them soaks into the cake, so it's very moist and very aromatic," she says. It's delicious plain--but you can also top it off with a sprinkling of candied lemon slices for a bright finish to any dinner gathering.
