      1. I put 2 tbsp. It sank terribly! So disappointed 🙁 do you have a lemon dessert idea where I can use the cake as a Base? Don’t want to throw it away.

        1. Oh no! Please accept my most sincere apologies:( I will be sure to double check in future ia. Hmm I’d recommend the cake as a base and either top with lemon curd and then meringue for a lemon meringue type dessert.. send me your email and I’ll send you a no bake marshmallow type topping that you could use in place if you don’t want to rebake it. Otherwise cake as base with a lemon mousse topping.

        2. Please accept a 10% discount on any bag of granola or my recipe book as I feel terrible that your cake wasn’t up to standard through an oversight of mine. Kindly Whatsapp me on 0835830029
