Glazed Meyer Lemon Tea Cake

Glazed Meyer Lemon Tea Cake by The Mommy Games

I love having a snack cake around the house. It’s perfect for dessert after dinner, an afternoon snack, a quick (albeit unhealthy) breakfast, and if you have one around to serve unexpected guests you automatically look like Martha Stewart for having something so fabulous baked up and sitting prettily on the counter. And this is just the cake to kick-off Spring. If you’ve never used Meyer lemons in baking before, you most definitely should grab a few before they’re all gone (the season is pretty quick). They are more mellow than a regular lemon and a flavor that is uniquely their own. Once baked, this cake is topped with a warm dessert wine glaze that seeps into the cake, and when cooled, adds an extra sweetness and richness without being sticky. A great twist on a classic lemon cake!
