Toasted Fennel-Lemon Cake
If substituting regular lemons, decrease peel to 2 tablespoons.
To make Candied Lemon Slices, in a large skillet, combine 3/4 cup sugar and 1/4 cup water; bring to boiling. Add 2 thinly sliced lemons. Simmer, uncovered, for 1 to 2 minutes or until slices are just softened. Transfer to a wire rack to cool.
