Lemon Lover's Cake
From Cook's Country
Although our Lemon Lover's Cake looks elegant and dainty, there's nothing delicate about its bold citrus flavor, which packs a punch in the cake, frosting, lemon curd topping, and candied lemon garnish. Our Lemon Lover's Cake recipe calls for lemon curd, which is easy to make. But if you're going to convenience, jarred lemon curd works just as well. Zesting only the bright yellow outer peel of the lemon brightened our Lemon Lover's Cake recipe by avoiding the white pith underneath the peel, which can impart a bitter flavor.
A lemon layer cake is an elegant way to greet spring. Like the season, lemon cake can resemble either a lion or a lamb. With potent citrus punches in the cake, frosting, lemon curd topping, and candied lemon garnish, our cake positively roars.
