Totally lemony, Easy Crustless Lemon Tart is super quick to prepare and totally delicious. You need this recipe in your repertoire! It’s soft, creamy and very lemony. In fact, it almost smacks you with the lemon ‘hit’. Just our sort of lemon dessert!
Edna’s Lemon Curd Cake …..⬅️click on the link for the recipe
We love anything with lemon and Edna’s lemon curd cake is a cake to love. Quick to put together and super easy to make. It’s a perfect little cake for afternoon tea. All lemony with a dense crumb that’s perfect for serving with a dollop of freshly whipped cream.
We came across this little winner on the net and immediately knew we had to bake it. We actually made it in a food processor and the mixture resembles a dough rather than a pouring consistency batter.
Another extremely popular recipe on our site is Italian lemon mascarpone tart. It’s creamy, tangy, lemony and delicious. Our friend Elle gave us this recipe and it’s one that she makes throughout the year. Elle uses a quality store bought artisan pastry which makes this super quick to put together.
War and Peace
Although the recipe reads like war and peace with so many instructions it really is just a case of making and blind baking the pastry shell, make the filling in a food processor, then baking.
Lemon Curd and Almond Butter Cake …..⬅️ click the link for the recipe
This delicious lemon curd and almond butter cake is a rustic cake with highs and lows formed by the deep pools of delicious golden curd and the soft buttery almond crumb of the butter cake batter then topped off with golden toasted almonds. What’s not to like!
Italian Lemon, Almond and White Chocolate Cake – Gluten Free …..⬅️ click on the link forthe recipe
This is one of the most popular recipes on our site. Italian lemon cake is so moist, lemony with white chocolate as a secret ingredient that adds a luxury smoothness to the dense crumb. This Italian lemon cake is a complete winner! Delicious, moist and utterly fantastic as an easy to make cake that completely delivers.
We made this cake for a simple and delicious summer luncheon with friends, serving our quick tuna and cannellini bean salad followed by Italian lemon cake with a dollop of fresh whipped cream. Everyone bar none asked for the recipe. With 12 guests, that was quite a compliment!
Serve with a coffee, packed for a picnic or served as an elegant finish to an Italian feast, perhaps with a little shot of limoncello liqueur on the side.
The tree that keeps on giving
Jen’s lemon tree is quietly amazing as it has fruit all year round. The largest lemon she actually weighed was an amazing 500g (17 1/2 ounces) …incredible! Sadly she has no idea of the variety as the tree was on the property when she bought it, but her visitors seldom leave without a bag of summer goodness.
