Crazy Lemon Cake

by Joanne on June 30, 2009

Jill’s sister is crazy about lemon. The cake for her birthday is a lemon cake filled with lemon curd and lemon ricotta, iced with lemon frosting.  Lemon, lemon, lemon. 






Lemon Ricotta Filling:

  • 1 15 oz Ricotta Cheese
  • 3 TBS Confectioners sugar
  • 1/2 tsp lemon zest
  • 1 TBS lemon juice
  • 1/4 tsp vanilla
  • 1/4 tsp almond extract

Mix all ingredients in a bowl. Put into a sieve to let any moisture from ricotta drain out.

            Thanks everyone! I like the way it came out – just hope it tastes as lemony as the birthday girl wants it.

                Sara and I would be all over this, we love everything lemon. I wonder how fantastic this would all be with Meyer lemons… we made some Meyer lemon curd gelato earlier this year and it was out of this world.

                Nice job on the decorations as well!
