The lemony yellow color of a daffodil reminds us of springtime and new beginnings. My grandma used to make this cake around Easter every year. In our family, we like to serve this cake cold, right out of the refrigerator. —Lori Kampstra, Franklin, Wisconsin
"I revised a recipe that appeared in the newspaper to come up with this lemony cake topped with a light and creamy frosting," shares Edna Thomas of Warsaw, Indiana. "Not only is it fast to fix, but it serves a crowd."
After my husband was diagnosed with high cholesterol, I started looking for light recipes. With its fresh berries and meringue topping, this sponge cake quickly became a favorite.—Suzanne Premo of Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario
My great-grandmother used to make this cake, which has been a family favorite for years. You won’t believe it starts with a cake mix! Lemon pudding and apricot nectar add a tanginess and moistness. It’s delicious plain or served with ice cream or whipped cream.
This cake tastes just like lemon meringue pie! Fresh lemon flavor shines through in the custard filling between the layers, and the light meringue frosting adds a fancy finish. It's not only a deliciously different dessert, but it's also a conversation piece!
