Pie "Prince lemon"

Pie "Prince lemon"

This pie brought me back to the children's distant past... Lemon baking has always been a signature dish of my grandma and we enjoyed the simple and delicious cakes-cakes in its execution. But Granny is not with us for a long time and records of food she did, all memory, all in the head. I found this recipe in the pages of culinary pamphlets, I decided to bake a cake and to my pleasant surprise got the cake of my childhood. Cake with bright lemon flavor, not cloying, soft, such a homemade and incredibly delicious!!! Thanks for the idea M. Anisimova.
