mamma agata's lemon cake

Eating this cake is how we started and finished our day of cooking at Mamma Agata's Cooking School in Ravello, Italy back in September.  As part of the class we were given a handout with the recipes we'd be eating.  I also bought the cookbook, but the handout went to the Gorilla.  This is where I am today and today was the day to attempt the infamous lemon cake.

Sadly, I did not take any photos of the process.  It would have been very amusing if I had.  I'm not a "baker."  I have a very small handful of things that I bake -- White Chocolate Cheesecake, Jiffy Cornbread and Chicken.  None of these things require flour.  Or baking powder.  Or alternating flour with milk and eggs and lemon zest. 

Anyway, after what seemed like an eternity, this is a lemon cake. It's pretty tasty, but I'm not sure it's "The" Lemon Cake.  I don't believe I had enough lemon zest in the batter and it's suppose to be garnished with hazelnuts (which I forgot to buy). But this may show up on the Thanksgiving dessert table...
