From "Desserts" by Pierre Herme
A moist and  fragrant lemon cake with a layer of fresh reaspberries baked in.  What's not to like?  The olive oil adds moisture and a subtle background flavor. A serious crowd pleaser.

Ro, do you wait for the cake to cool before putting the meringue mix on? Ta!

Yeah, the cake should be slightly cooled before you top it w/the meringue. if you wait a solid half hour that should be fine. Ro
