The lemon capers are one of my favourite desserts, and one that I use often to add a nice garnish to many of my desserts.
This recipe uses a simple and easy recipe, so you can have it on hand all year round.
The recipe also uses a bit of extra sugar which can make the flavours a little too sweet for some people, but for me that’s nothing to worry about.
The lemon butter is also good for the skin and the texture, and it gives the lemon a lovely flavour.
The sauce makes it so much easier to eat with your hands, and makes a wonderful base for a simple lemon cake.
If you want to add more lemon butter to the recipe, add 1 tbsp.
of extra virgin olive oil to the sauce.
Recipe Notes This recipe is a wonderful addition to any dessert table, but I love that it’s perfect for a quick lunch or dinner, too.
If the lemon butter sauce is too sweet, try adding a bit more lemon juice, but this will make the lemon more palatable.
