    Just made my first fresh Chevre from local friend’s goat milk. The first gallon has turned out great (I’ve got 2 to go). Finding this lemon cake recipe helps solve my dilemma of ‘what to do beyond herb spreads’. Also great recipe calls for 2 eggs (we have an abundance). Thanks! Now…. what to do with the whey :)

      So happy to hear you like this recipe, it is one of our long-time favorites! I have been using whey protein in my smoothies each morning…that might be a good solution for you and your family AND you have the benefit of having the fresh whey! If you raise livestock, especially piglets, they certainly love it as well! Thanks for your comments… Sharon
