This is the time of year when we are invited to lots of house parties and are asked to "bring a dish to pass". Deserts at this time of year are often chocolate, peppermint or very rich. How about taking something fresh, delicious and unexpected. This is a delicious and beautiful lemon cake. Made in a jelly roll pan, it is not your traditional thick cake. Everyone will enjoy a refreshing piece of this one. It's easy too! You may like it so much that you volunteer to bring desert!
