Easter Lamb Cake
Total TimePrep: 20 min. + standing Bake: 45 min. + cooling
Glad to find a bit of a different cake for this. My mom always used a spice pound cake recipe that I was never too keen on. I have my great great grandmother's cast iron mold and the matching baby lamb. Nobody I knew ever had this tradition, but I plan to do it with my future children the way I did growing up. We also always used a boiled icing which I still prefer. I may try experimenting with a dense lemon pound cake even which I think would go lovely with the coconut.
lkollock - The Easter lamb cake is very traditional for many ethnic groups - German, Italian, Polish, Czech, and probably more. The molds were originally cast iron, but in the early 1950's (I think) Nordic Ware manufactured an aluminum Lamb Cake Pan. Many of us have our grandmother's mold, but you can still buy your own! https://www.amazon.com/Nordic-Ware-Spring-Lamb-Cake/dp/B000O5NR5Q
Have not tried the recipe yet, but I want to thank you for this. I have my Mother's cast iron lamb mold but no longer have the recipe. The video is most helpful because I always struggled with the icing when I used to make this years ago. Much appreciated!
Sounds great. I’ve been using a pound cake recipe for my lamb mold, but I’m going to give this a try
Who the heck has a 3D lamb cake mold?
Love the Easter lamb mold cake! I have my Mom’s mold that I have used for years. It is a beautiful centerpiece for the Easter table. I have been using a boxed pound cake mix, but this recipe is ideal. Jean, Nebraska native.
And Ilove the bonus Jello Video..... pulling out my copper molds for this Easter!
