This is my son’s favorite cake. It’s a simple lemon cake that I sometimes serve decorated with lemon frosting or garnished with streaks of sweet-tart lemon filling, though I always prefer it unadorned. I adapted it from the ever popular Crazy Cake (a.k.a. Wacky Cake, Oil and Vinegar Cake) that everyone grew up making and eating in the U.S. My brother, whose sixth grade teacher taught the class to cook, made this cake for me growing up. It’s he who inspired in me a lifelong love of baking.
