7-Up Cake

Another day of experimenting in the kitchen....this time I was not alone....I had a kitchen buddy. My Singaporean friend, Doris came a-visiting and we baked this cake while chatting about the forthcoming Eid.

I don't normally have an audience while cooking, except when I was holding a Malaysian cooking class for the American School...Now, with them I felt like I could get away with murder....In my mind, as long as the result looked and tasted like an Asian dish....I'm alright.

Thank God the cake came out fine....or else my reputation will be amongst the gutter. Phew.....

This moist cake with a hint of lemony freshness has a very crisp crunchy crust
