Your reviews:

  1. Recipe rating: 2 of 5 Nice looking, but bad tasting.

    It all turned out to be a round circle, with a very very massive structure and texture. Very hard to eat because of that, and overly tastey of lemon. I think this may boil down to the 2 hour cooking time, and letting it cool off in the turned off oven. Not fresh tasting in any way even after being chilled overnight.
