6 Irresistible Recipes for Lemon Lovers

lemon pudding cakes

When life gives you lemons, make one of these fabulous desserts!

  1. pound cake

    Lemon Buttermilk Pound Cake

    If ever there was a cake for lemon lovers, this is it. Lemon zest and lemon juice are added to the batter, which lightly perfume the cake with lemon. After the cake is baked, it’s doused with lemon syrup and drizzled with a tart lemon glaze.

  2. lemon pudding cakes

    Warm Lemon Pudding Cakes

    Spoon into these lovely little cakes and discover a delightful surprise: the batter magically separates while baking into a fluffy cake atop a luscious lemon pudding. They have all the tart-sweet flavor of a lemon pie with none of the fuss, and they make a wonderful light dessert.

  3. lemon meringue pie

    Easy Lemon Meringue Pie

    Unlike most lemon meringue pie recipes, which can be rife with issues — a soggy crust, a soupy filling, or a meringue that weeps — this recipe is foolproof. And since it’s made with a graham cracker crust and a sweetened condensed milk filling, it comes together quickly.

  4. Luscious Lemon Squares

    With a crisp shortbread crust, luscious lemon filling, and dusting of powdered sugar, these lemon squares are as pretty as they are delicious. They also freeze beautifully, so you can make them ahead of time and defrost as needed.

  5. parfaits

    Lemon Berry Parfaits

    Fresh berries are delicious on their own but if you’re looking for a way to dress them up, elegant parfaits are the way to go. Here, I’ve layered them with a luscious lemon cream — essentially a lemon curd lightened with whipped cream — to brighten their natural sweetness.

  6. raspberry lemonade

    Raspberry Lemonade

    Nothing beats the heat on a hot summer day like fresh squeezed lemonade. This refreshing lemonade gets its vibrant pink color from puréed fresh raspberries. Add a splash of vodka to make a grown-up version.
