1 cup sugar
3 eggs, separated
15 ladyfingers or 1 already cooked pound cake, cut in fingers

Prep Day: Cream butter & sugar together. Add egg yolks, grated lemon peel, grated orange peel + the strained juices & mix well. Beat the egg whites till stiff & fold them into the butter mixture. Line the bottom of a 1-qt mold or cake tin w/ladyfingers (or pound cake fingers) & cover them w/a layer of the butter mixture.

Idea Option: Substitute lime for the lemon. Yum!



I’m a married mother of 3. Who loves living in Minnesota, prep ahead cooking, and couldn’t live without them now. No more worries about the age old question “What’s for Dinner?”. I am also transitioning my family into the slow food and clean eating movement. I believe it’s best if we can eat food in it’s most natural state. I love to share the information I have been gaining through this whole experience. I’m also a trained personal chef. Cooking is a passion and hobby of mine. Hope your are enjoying the content of my blog.
