When life gives you lemons, make one of these dreamy lemon desserts. From lemon poppyseed cake to lemon meringue pie, these tart-sweet treats will brighten up your day!
A variation of my favorite lemon buttermilk pound cake, this lemon poppy seed cake is laced with fresh lemon zest, filled to the brim with nutty, crackly poppy seeds, and drizzled with a bright lemon glaze.
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 and none of the fuss.
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 to brighten their natural sweetness.
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. The baked cake is then doused with lemon syrup and drizzled with a tart lemon glaze.
This refreshing lemonade gets its vibrant pink color from puréed fresh raspberries. Add a splash of vodka to make a grown-up version.
With a crisp and buttery shortbread crust, luscious lemon filling, and dusting of powdered sugar, these lemon squares are as pretty as they are delicious.
This elegant fruit salad can be served on its own but it’s also wonderful paired with pound cake, vanilla ice cream — or both!
Unlike most lemon meringue pie recipes, this one is foolproof and easy. And, since it’s made with a graham cracker crust and sweetened condensed milk filling, it comes together quickly.
