The Cake Slice Bakers this month made a Triple Lemon Chiffon Cake. This cake is easy to put together, goes together fairly quickly and is absolutely light, lemony and delicious. In fact, if you like Lemonheads candy (which I LOVE) then you would be completely delighted with this cake. I got that distinct level of tart and tangy with just enough sweet. It was awesome. The cake itself has a beautiful yellow tone to it and is light and slightly springy. The lemon curd layered between the layers of cake is tangy and smooth and the whipped lemon cream frosting is super simple to make and is the perfect light compliment to the whole thing. I just added some bright yellow sugar sprinkles on top for an extra burst of color and a little sugary crunch.
I really have nothing bad to say about this cake, well, except for the fact that I halved the recipe since I didn't have anywhere to take the cake this time. I guess the only con is that there isn't more. To make the lemon loaf cake like I did, I just made a half batch of everything and then baked the cake in one 9x13-inch pan.
Seriously, if you like lemon, just make this cake!
Incidentally, if you do decide to make this cake, someone mentioned recently that March 29th is National Lemon Chiffon Day - so, there you go!
