actually going to start with homemade buttermilk, which is a cup of whole milk, and then into the whole milk i've got a lemon, and i've already zested the lemon 'cause we're going to use the zest -- i'm making a little bit of a mess. and the reason i'm doing homemade buttermilk is simply because most of us have milk in our fridge already. >> right. >> and the lemon -- just a tablespoon of lemon juice into the whole milk. and, actually, after a few minutes, this is going to curdle just like homemade buttermilk. >> really? >> so for me, this is a way of just using the whole lemon. there are so many recipes where you just use the zest, and then it's sad -- it's like you have this sad zested lemon. so we're using the juice to make our homemade buttermilk, and then our zest is going to go into the batter. so i have two 8-inch round cake pans. this is a two-layer cake we're going to make. and i have a tablespoon of unsalted butter that's really soft, and i've divided it between the two pans. so, you take one, i take one. we're gonna get our hands a little bit messy. >> okay. >> and then you're gonna grease the pan with the butter. we're going to take first 1/4 cup of almonds -- about that.

you know, a handful or so. and these are the sliced ones, not slivered. see that? >> i see that. >> okay. and then you take the pan again. just kind of shake it around. so then what you have to do is put a little of this evaporated cane juice that i was telling you about, also labeled as organic sugar -- about 2 teaspoons in each pan, but you can just kind of eyeball it. so now we can make the batter. butter first. why don't you grab the rest of that evaporated cane juice? >> okay. >> and just really slowly pour that in. okay. so, once it starts to look creamy, this is actually the point where i like to add in my flavorings. so, when you add your vanilla, which i'm gonna do about a tablespoon -- and this is when you want to pull out the big guns, like your really good-quality vanilla extract. this is a great recipe to save it for because we're really sort of -- >> it will kick up the flavor. >> oh, it absolutely will. we're also going to put in our lemon zest. >> lemon zest. >> okay. so now we can add our eggs. we have 5 large eggs, and we're going to add them in one at a time -- give each one about 30 seconds to incorporate before you add the next one.

so, this is the base of our dry ingredients. then we're going to add in some baking soda, baking powder, and fine sea salt. so let's set this aside. the drys are done. let's go back to our homemade buttermilk. >> oh, look at -- wow! >> it's really curdled. we need about 1/2 cup of honey. and then you just want to mix this together. you can use a little fork or a whisk. so, we have our homemade buttermilk with our lemon juice and honey in here and then our dry ingredients -- flour, almond flour, leavener, some salt. now we get to the part where we finish up the batter. 1/3 of the dry ingredients... >> okay. >> ...1/2 our wet ingredients. you always want to give the batter a fold by hand, just to make sure, again, that we're getting everything off the bottom of the bowl, and then we fill these up. and you just do half -- half in one, half in the other. we've got the oven preheating, 350 degrees. these are gonna go in anywhere from 40 to 45 minutes, depending on your oven. when you're baking with honey, something really important to remember is that honey gets really brown really fast. so you may take a glance at the

cake around 30, 35 minutes and go, "oh, my god!" but that's what it's supposed to do. >> okay. >> that's where the flavor comes from. so, let's get it in the oven. >> let's put 'em in the oven. >> all right. >> all right. the cake is done. >> it is done. so, they baked for about 45 minutes, and then you want to let them cool in the pans for about 10 minutes, and we'll loosen them and turn them out. let them cool completely so we don't melt our frosting. okay. so, we have our bottom layer right here, and then we're going to just get to finishing this cake off. so in here -- we've got the recipe on the website -- this is actually a honey-lemon cream cheese frosting. so now comes the fun part. we get to add on our raspberries. >> okay. >> i remember when we were photographing this cake for the book, and i remember thinking, like, "it's so pretty. this is what the book is all about." you know, these are natural ingredients. it's really fresh. you can find these things in any grocery store. but it's natural. there's nothing artificial that contributes the beauty to this cake, you know? i just like it. okay. so, to finish it off, this is the rest of our cream cheese frosting.
