I am making a lemon cake and was wondering how to use the lemon extract i bought? do i use it in place of the vanilla in my cake recipe? I want a very lemony taste..thanks for your help
Yes, you can replace the vanilla extract with the lemon extract to make a lemon flavored cake.
If you don't feel that's lemony enough, you can add a bit extra...
You may also want to consider adding fresh lemon zest to the cake batter. It carries quite a lemon-y punch.
thank you so much! about how much should i put in? I usually put 3TBS of vanilla..i ordered the lemon extract thru kitchen crafts...is this kind strong enough?
Can't tell ya. But taste the batter once the extract is mixed in and ready to go. If you think it is sufficiently puckery then great. If not, you can add zest for additional punch.
zest is a great idea! thank you for your help!
