I am so glad i stumbled upon your site. Purchased your e book -AMAZING! Have you ever made a sugar free cake mix like the one used in your cake recipes. Having a hard time finding the sugar free cake mix right now and it’s a bit pricey on amazon. You have changed the way I eat and bake. Thanks so very much

Can you add lemon juice to vanilla sf pudding? Hard to find the sf lemon where I live.

Yes! Absolutely! Just add about 1/8th of a tsp to the mix. Thanks so much

I'm assuming yes, but does the lemon juice and zest go into the cake batter? Also, is there a measurement for the extract? Thanks! We love lemon and I'd love to make this for my husband.

My apologizes. I had edited the recipe from extract to fresh lemon juice and forgot to edit the directions. I have now done so. In place of the extract you can use fresh lemon juice and zest. If you don't have a fresh lemon,,,you use 1/2 tbsp of lemon extract. Thank you!
