Lemon Hearts

I have something special about Valentines Day. Believe it or not since my husband was here (US), I met him only five days before of our marriage on this special day.I got a memorable gift and I didn’t give him anything as all women do:). (He wants me to mention this line particularly)Though we didn't meet we used to chat in Google talk, which laid strong foundation for both of us to understand each other better. Since that time I have known him, he has been the most understanding person in this world. So in this our Second Valentines Day I just wanted to surprise him by presenting this hearts. Here we go with the recipe…


All Purpose Flour – 2cups
Freshly squeezed lemon juice– 3tsp
Grated Lemon Rind – 3tsp
Sugar – ½ cup
Yogurt – 1/2cup
Butter – 1 slice
Egg – 3
Baking powder – 2tsp
Soda salt – 1tsp
Heart shaped foil cups
Beats (for decorating)


Preheat oven to 300 degrees F.

In a mixing bowl mix sugar and butter with wood spoon.

In another bowl beat eggs well. Now add curd, lemon juice and rind with this mixture and mix well.

Mix flour, baking powder and soda salt in a separate bowl and mix in all together as a batter.

Now pour in a buttered baking foil cups and bake for 30mins.

Let it warm and serve with sugar coated hearts.

These hearts go to Zorra's 'A heart for your Valentine' event and Pooja who is hosting Theme of the week – Valentine’s Day

And also I am sending these lemon hearts to JFI-Lemon/Lime by The spice cafe.
