I am in love with my doterra oils. They add so much to my culinary efforts. If you haven’t already discovered them, it is officially time to get on board. I am of course using them for a lot more than just flavour, but wow, the flavour they add is hard to beat.
I was craving a lemon cake...and as I also love my Cobram EVOO, this was the solution. Moist, light, airy and very lemony! You’re welcome.
If you are opposed to pure lemon oil, (which is after all just an extract from the skin of the lemon) then by all means, replace the oil with the finely grated zest of a couple of lemons.
BENEFITS of Lemon Oil; Lemon oil is calming in nature and therefore helps in removing mental fatigue, exhaustion, dizziness, anxiety, nervousness, and nervous tension.
It is also good for your skin!

No Doterra oil in your pantry? Just use the zest of 1 or two lemons, finely grated, in place of the oils. The Doterra oil is literally the oil of the lemon skin in concentrated form, with no skin at all. Just pure oil.
