I’d never heard of a Lemon LuLu Cake, but happily, that changed recently.
To me, there’s nothing better than a surprise package arriving on my doorstep with something delicious inside!
Sweet or savory, packages bearing food are always welcome!
Also great is finding out about something yummy that you didn’t even know existed.
Mother Myrick’s, of Manchester, Vermont, happily filled both those roles recently.
HudsonValleyEATS was contacted by Taylor, their PR person, who countered our (slight) objections that it wasn’t actually something from the Hudson Valley by saying, “but we ship to the Hudson Valley all the time.”
The goodies arrived the next day, perfectly packaged and in pristine shape—not a crumb out of place.
There was their signature Lemon LuLu Cake and a box of Buttercrunch.
It came with a lovely, hand-written card that turned out to be from a place I know up in Maine, so I was already inclined to like it.
The Lulu cake is a lemon pound cake. It’s a lovely, light, moist cake, with a lemon glaze and a sprinkling of confectioner’s sugar. I’m sure it would be great with some fresh berries and/or ice cream, but ours disappeared before it could be paired with anything except a fork.
If you were ever in need of an “emergency cake,” Lemon Lulu cake can be frozen, or you can just order one for next-day delivery. No need to turn on the oven all summer!
The Buttercrunch, another signature item, looked and smelled amazing.
I say that because, sadly, I couldn’t taste them, so we have to take Janet’s word that they were really buttery and she liked it a lot!
There are lots of other goodies in their catalog or online, so if you have a hankering for something sweet and don’t feel like heating up the kitchen, just relax, shop and enjoy!
