Zesty Lemon Cake with Lemon Italian Meringue Buttercream – The most lemony cake that you will ever taste, so delicious and easy to make and will wow any guests with its incredible lemon taste.
There really is nothing better than a lemony lemon cake. You know what I mean? Not one that just looks a little like it could be a lemon cake or one that tastes a little like lemon flavouring. But rather one that tastes like LEMON. Like serious lemon! That is what this Zesty Lemon Cake with Lemon Italian Meringue Buttercream is. It is pure lemony goodness. The cake has a beautiful soft lemon tastes, the filling is my absolute favourite lemon curd and the Italian meringue buttercream is a perfect balance of sweetness and delicious sourness from the lemon.
Oh I have had dreams about this cake. And if I was any better with my words I would write poems about this cake. It is simply perfect. There really isn’t anything more I could say about this cake.
I love it because it truly tastes like lemon, and it is incredibly light and oh so refreshing. When you feel like a delicious slice of cake, but you aren’t really in the mood for something decadent and creamy like a chocolate cake then this Zesty Lemon Cake with Lemon Italian Meringue Buttercream right here is exactly what you need in your life right now.
The cake recipe is fairly easy to make as long as you follow all the steps, and then for the lemon curd I made my own because it just tastes so much better. You can get the recipe for the lemon curd over…here. But if you are a little lazy (as I so often can be) or if you’re in a bit of a rush then you could very easily swop out the homemade lemon curd for a delicious store bought version. Lastly, but definitely not least, the Lemon Italian Meringue Buttercream. Mmmm… I love Italian meringue buttercream, it is just so beautifully soft and smooth and some how less sweet than regular buttercream. Add a little lemon curd into that all time favourite and bam! you have pretty much the best frosting you will ever taste. You will be licking the plate clean with this cake… that’s a guarantee.
Why not give it a Pin so you can save it for later? 😉
