Polenta in cakes this time I am, this is the kind of sticky cake you see in pattisseries I think it looks like sunshine and tastes of summer warm lemons. You could use others fruits like apricots or oranges . But I am a bit of a lemon fiend eating the lemon rind from my gin and tonics. I have been fantasizing about a really good tarte au citron so I think that might be next on the list to bake.
