Notes about this recipe

  • LouiseQuasiChef on July 25, 2018

    I had trouble with this cake. Next time I will watch the egg whites more closely and perhaps reduce the speed of the mixer. The egg whites whipped up FIRM while I wasn't looking -- before the 2 minute mark, so I could only just lightly whisk in the sugar. I baked in a 9x12" pan. I took a shortcut and skipped the curd, adding lemon oil to the (plain!) buttercream and layering with raspberries after lemon sugar glaze. The buttercream is unusual for me in that it uses whole eggs and yolks rather than whites. There is a HUGE amount of butter in the buttercream and I think it tastes like well, butter.

    One of the best lemon cakes I've ever had/made. Lemon zest, lemon syrup and lemon curd ensure that there's true lemon flavour in every bite. The berries weren't necessary but they added a wonderful freshness to the cake. I'm not normally as generous with the frosting between cake layers as this recipe wanted me to be so I reduced the recipe by one third which left more than enough for some simple piping. I added lemon curd to all of the buttercream (rather than just the portion allotted to the filling). It was a little soft and difficult to work with so I'll reconsider that move the next time I make the cake.

    The cake met my requirements perfectly for lemony-ness and berry flavor....I’m not sure I can top this, so I might have to bake the same cake again next year.
