Easy Peasy Lemon and Almond Cake

For the past few days, I have been cooking and baking. Abah passed away on 9th of March 2014. Alhamdulillah we were prepared. Alhamdulillah for the opportunity given by Allah to take care of abah for almost 3 weeks. I am blessed.

Aku ditugaskan untuk masak for the whole house. So, everyday, aku masak kat rumah and send to rumah mok. I baked too. At least tetamu yang datang ada something to eat. Jazakallahu khairan to friends and relatives yang datang visit. Thank you for your love and support.

Today I baked this lemon cake. Dah tak tau nak bake apa, aku google for best cake recipes and I found this. Hubby cakap sedap sangat. Dia siap request for this cake and the blueberry creamcheese coffee cake yg aku baked semalam. Berpeluh ketiak... Dah ler Sunday ni Melawati takde air.

I used quartet bundt pan. So dapat 4 small cakes :)
