Lemon Cake Recipe
Great recipe by http://doterrabella.com:
1 box vanilla cake mix (Recommended: gluten-free Arrowhead Mills brand)
1 tsp. best vanilla
Juice and zest of 1 lemon
3–4 drops of doTERRA essential lemon oil
Make cake as per directions, adding the vanilla and half of the lemon juice and all of the zest. Add in 2 drops of lemon oil and mix one last time. Bake as directed in cake pan of choice. I used 2 x 9″ cake pans, but you can use a rectangle, or even a loaf pan.
Let cool, then turn out cakes from metal pans and put on ceramic or glass. Poke holes in the top of the cake throughout. Mix the remaining lemon juice and 1–2 drops of the lemon oil. Pour over cake so the juice seeps into the holes and makes it extra moist and lemony. Yum!
Tip: The lemon, like all doTERRA essential oils, is very potent. Less is more! Even if you are a true lemon lover, take it one drop at a time to see what suits your taste.
