Woody’s 04 Lemon Luxury Layer Cake (page 43) – my lemon luxury

i think the name of this cake comes about from using the best and most luxuriuous lemon ingredients.  for ROSE’S heavenly CAKES: Woody’s Lemon Luxury Layer Cake (page 409).  my take on luxury is as follow:

1- lemon curd from TipTree.  omg, it is delicious.  not a hint too sweet, profusely lemon, descent color, and all natural.  it is imported from England!  this would be one of the world finds worth bringing.  really, i think there isn’t any other store-bought lemon curd that equals the freshness of home made lemon curd.  you must try this one, i am telling you the flavor is amazing.  it has a lemon flavor depth that i’ve never encounter before (maybe the lemons are organic!  lol):

2- and, boyajian lemon oil.  i substituted the lemon zest called on the cake batter, with lemon oil.  now, read the label carefully, it is so lemony and concentrated that i can stain your plastic measuring spoons.  what to do?  dunk the used measuring spoon on a glass of iced water and you have instant lemonade.  now, THAT is hector’s TAKE!

    H, why not make Rose’s lemon curd? I’ve never tried the store bought version but hers is so good IMHO, I can’t think of anything better. When I make it I always use organic lemon btw.

    Great use of the lemon oil leftover in the spoon – it’d be sad to let all those goodness go to waste!

    • J, the lemon oil lemonade was awesome! Now I also do it with my vanilla.

      I agree that Rose’s lemon curd recipe is awesome. I love it. TipTree brand is recommended on her book, and I loved it, I truly think it is exceptional.

    Hector, I couldn’t agree more, I just picked up some Tiptree lemon curd from Zabar’s a week and a half ago. I love Rose’s, of course, and make it whenever I can. But sometimes it’s a lifesaver to have a jar of ready-made in the pantry. And Tiptree is soooo much better than any other brand I’ve tried. So. Much. Better.

    Love the lemon oil, too! I also use it in lemonade, as well as lemon chicken and yogurt. All this talk of lemon, now I want to make the golden lemon almond cake again!

    • J. thx for sharing your so equal stories dear.

      i think i posted o will post on my blog what to do with your measuring spoon after using the lemon oil. dunk it in a glass of ice water for instant lemonade!
