when I look around, I think this,
this is good enough
and I try to laugh at whatever life brings
because when I look down,
I just miss all the good stuff
and when I look up,
I just trip over things

This is a link to a recipe that Jessica posted for a fantastic yellow cake. It can be easily modified to be lemony or whatever you like. It's light and fluffy, and taste exactly like cake should taste (gluten-free or not!).
To make it lemony, add 1/2 tsp lemon extract and finely grated zest of 1 lemon to the wet ingredients and proceed as directed.
