LEMON POLENTA CAKE


COOKBOOK:  Mag Recipe


When my daughter in law says it’s out of this world, well then it’s out of this world! She doesn’t like cake so I convinced her to try this one with polenta and it was a total hit!

You need to wait for it too cool down completely before cutting up. It can be a little crumbly but it did not stop us from eating it all in almost one hit!

Hope you enjoy
