These easy lemon cake recipes are great for entertaining as well as lazy Sunday afternoon desserts. The collection includes 2 zesty lemon drizzle cakes, a fruity blueberry lemon cake and a tangy, delicious cheesecake.
Welcome to #CookBlogShare Week #28
#CookBlogShare is a weekly link party where we share recipes, comment on each other’s cooking creations and generally immerse ourselves in the world of gastronomy! If you’ve got a recipe this is the place to show it off!
I have the pleasure of co-hosting this link party together with 2 fantastic bloggers and each of us gets to host about once a month. The other co-hosts are: Eb@Easy Peasy Foodie and Jacqui@Recipes Made Easy.
#CookBlogShare is also occasionally guest hosted. Next week it will be hosted by Cat from Curly’s Cooking.
If you are new to this link party please take a moment to read the guidelines below. Joining is very simple and you are welcome to share your old and new recipes (there is no specific theme and all recipes are welcome).
Thank you to everyone who shared their recipe with us last week.
Today’s features are all about LEMON.
With this delicious collection of lemony bakes you can practically smell citrus in the air and almost taste the tangy lively flavour of lemons. With a little sprinkle of sugar.
I certainly can. I am also reminded of how much I love to use lemons in baking. So far I haven’t got a lemon cake recipe in my repertoire (need to change that soon!) but I’ve shared 2 healthy muffin recipes using lemons.
My easy lemon marzipan muffins are one of my favourite ‘sweet’ breakfast recipes. I remember vividly making them. They filled the kitchen with delicious lemony and sweet marzipan aroma and their intensely yellow colour brought a smile to my face. One of my favourite muffin recipes!
The other recipe where I’ve used lemon are these Canadian inspired gluten free blueberry muffins with maple syrup. Blueberries pair incredibly well with lemons so these muffins are fruity and citrussy and perfect as a low sugar breakfast idea.
One of the featured recipes this week also uses this delicious flavour combination – take a look↓
4 easy lemon cake recipes
If you love using seasonal fruit in your bakes Donna’s Lemon and Blueberry Cake is a delicious recipe idea to try out. This summery fruity cake is sweet and tangy and super easy to make. It is also quite low in fat as Donna used a combination of butter and naturally ‘skinny’ buttermilk, which I know from my own experience, produces fantastically light and fluffy bakes. And this cake is exactly that!
This Gluten Free Lemon Drizzle Cake is so easy to put together it’s perfect for making with kids. Vicki from Free From Fairy made it with the help of her 6-year-old son. In fact I think by the sound of it he was the master baker and she was the baker’s assistant! This cake is dairy free and refined sugar free but you can also make it using dairy and regular sugar if you prefer.
Another delicious Easy Lemon Drizzle Cake comes from A Baking Journey. Sylvie’s cake takes only 10 minutes to throw together so it’s perfect for busy people – plus you can enjoy it for breakfast, as a snack or dessert! Her lemon icing is low in sugar which infuses the cake with lots of delicious tangy lemon flavour without being overly sweet. Definitely my kind of cake!
Vicki from Free From Fairy also shared her easy no-bake Vegan Lemon Cheesecake recipe. I love a cheesecake especially one with a healthy twist. This gorgeous cheesecake contains no refined sugar and is sweetened with a pretty moderate amount of maple syrup. Not only that, it uses very few ingredients and is super quick and easy to make. My idea of a perfect dessert!
