Raspberry Lemon Layer Cake Recipe

Cooking is my best and biggest hobby – trying recipes with different flavor combinations like pound cake with lemon curd and raspberries. — Janice Baker, London, Kentucky
TOTAL TIME: Prep/Total Time: 25 min. YIELD:6 servings


  • 1-1/2 cups heavy whipping cream
  • 3 tablespoons confectioners' sugar
  • 3 tablespoons orange juice
  • 1 loaf (10-3/4 ounces) frozen pound cake, thawed
  • 1 jar (10 ounces) lemon curd
  • 2-1/2 cups fresh raspberries


  • 1. In a small bowl, beat cream until it begins to thicken. Add confectioners' sugar and orange juice; beat until stiff peaks form. Using a long serrated knife, cut cake horizontally into three layers.

"I made this cake last year for my husband for Father's Day and he requested it again this year. I used an angel food cake loaf this year for a bit of a lighter version. Both cakes work well."

"Great quick dessert. I sometimes use a loaf angel food cake instead of the pound cake. And I make my own lemon curd. But you can't beat this combination!"
