While in Mexico, I learned many delicious recipes. Among them were a few dessert recipes. My favorite desserts are those that are prepared with fresh lime or lemon juice. This recipe for pay de limón, or lemon cake, is simple and requires minimal ingredients. I could not believe how delicious and creamy it was. I'd swear it was some fancy dessert from a high-end bakery or restaurant. As a kid, and still today, I love galletas Maria. These humble biscuits can be enjoyed on their own but also serve as an excellent dessert ingredient. Crush them and use them to top off your mousse, like we did (twice!) in these recipes for mango mousse and key lime mousse.
As for this pay de limón recipe, I will be adding it to my menu for my upcoming family gatherings!
