Powerhouse Park was in full bloom at the Del Mar Foundation’s 2nd Annual Picnic at the Park, Sunday, October 8. The community enjoyed music from local bands, entertainment, games for children, a bike safety class as well as a chance to visit many Del Mar non-profit organization’s kiosks including:

the Historical Society, the Friends of the Powerhouse, the Friends of the Library, the Garden Club, the Rose Society, the Sustainability Advisory Committee, the Lifeguards, CERT, Free Flight, the San Diego Bike Coalition, Del Mar Community Connections, and the Del Mar Foundation.

Jersey Mike’s and Viewpoint Brewing Co. provided food and drink for purchase. Dessert, Del Mar’s Lemon Cake, was free and plentiful, baked by able Del Mar Community Connections volunteers.

In case you didn’t get your fill, here is the secret recipe for Del Mar’s Famous Lemon Cake.

Del Mar’s Famous Lemon Cake
1 pkg (3 oz) lemon Jell-O
1 pkg yellow cake mix with pudding
3/4 C water
4 eggs
3/4 C oil
2 lemons - juice and zest
1 C powdered sugar, sifted

Heat oven to 350 degrees. Mix all but Glaze ingredients together and pour into a greased and floured bundt or 9x13” pan. Bake for 35 minutes. While the cake is baking, grate the rind from the lemons and juice them. Mix the juice and zest with the powdered sugar. When cake is removed from the oven, pierce all over with a long-tined fork. Pour the lemon sugar glaze over the hot cake and try not to eat it until it cools. Yum.
