    Alice's comment - PersonalCooker

    The dessert lends itself to being soaked in milk, tea or coffee; for a more delicious version, you can serve the lemon cake stuffed with strawberry or cherry jam. You can also use the dessert I just proposed as an alternative to the classic margherita: in short, unleash your imagination and create your favorite pan-fried dessert.
