I was asked to make this recipe for my niece’s sweet 16. Her favorite cake was a lemon angel food cake. I was almost finished mixing the batter when I realized, I had added peppermint extract instead of lemon extract. I didn’t have enough time or ingredients to make a new one, so I added lemon zest and more lemon extract.
I was astonished at the reaction. Everyone loved it! They kept saying how “fresh” it was. I’m sure that was the mint. This recipe has now become my go to recipe, mint and all. I hope you enjoy this cake.
What are some of your best mistakes?
