Today is the last day of April, and I don’t know about you, but I feel like this month just flew on by! When I glanced at my calendar I realized that my family and I have a very busy month coming up. Along with Mother’s Day, in May we will celebrate my mother’s birthday, gather to remember those who gave the ultimate sacrifice on Memorial Day and our family will also celebrate together as my son receives his First Holy Communion. With all of my May weekends booking up fast, I am busy planning today. Do you have a busy May ahead of you?
If you are looking for something simple to bake even with a busy schedule, then these delicious Lemon & Almond Pound Cake Squares would be a perfect addition to your Mother’s Day Brunch or Dinner. Fresh lemon zest is added to a thick and buttery batter, garnished with sliced almonds and baked for a pretty cake that goes wonderfully with a cup of coffee or even a special mimosa!
Every year I host a Mother’s Day Brunch at my house for my grandmother, mother and mother- in- law. It’s not really fancy or anything, but I like to get out my china, set the table with flowers and make a nice meal for those important ladies in my life. If you are looking for a uncomplicated, elegant sweet treat, then give this recipe a try! I even make it on the weekends sometimes, just because. What are your Mother’s Day plans this year?
