I once read that if your favorite ingredients isn't available in the store you would need to find a back up plan. I have heard about King Arthur Flour but never that to use it. So over the weekend I decided to give it a try before I baked a cake for someone else. I was very happy with the results. Now I have two main stars in the home for baking cakes. For the first try I wanted to use on of King Arthur Flour recipes from their website. I decided to use the Lemon Bliss Cake Recipe. But, unfortunately I didn't have regular lemons in the house so I substituted the lemons for Meyer Lemons.
