cake with white currants....never had currants on cake, just off the vine every August. Lunch was a matter of seasons growing up. Once school was out, we had to find food for our lunch. Anything from the garden or fruit trees in the neighborhood. Water from the garden hose. REALLY. I love currents.
The name of this old-fashioned cake comes from its simple measuring formula: one cup butter, two cups sugar, three cups flour, and four eggs. Our take on the classic offers layers of textures and tastes, with sweetened whipped cream, custardy lemon curd, and fresh mixed berries. Recipe: 1-2-3-4 Lemon Cake
