This Raspberry Lemon Cake has a sweet raspberry layer under the light lemon mousse topping. It is a cool and refreshing dessert to bring to picnics and parties.
Yup, it’s lemon goodness here on the blog again. Can you believe that I am still gaga for lemon? It’s like I’m a whole new person or something. Ever since I made the best lemon bars and these lemon coconut cupcakes earlier this year, I have been wanting more lemon goodness in my life. But don’t fret my fellow peanut butter and chocolate lovers…I haven’t forgotten my true dessert loves. I see chocolate happening very soon around here!
Maybe my lemon crave is going strong because spring is in full force here in TX. I am seriously loving the blue skies and sunshine! Winter can stay away forever. Although, the other day we woke up to 37*. Not cool, mother nature! My blood has quickly adjusted to this warmer climate, so all day long I was freezing.
I even had to pull out a sweatshirt because there was no way I was turning the heat on. Our electric bill is high enough with children who keep “forgetting” to turn the lights off. I might just “forget” to turn their internet back on too. Then we will see how fast they remember those light switches.
Every time I try to go without sugar for a little while, I really, really crave the sweets. You would think the smart thing to do would be to avoid the kitchen at all costs.
But that’s not me. Baking is really a form of therapy for me. It calms my nerves and keeps the stress away. Well, the baking that is impromptu and not required that is.
This lemon cake is really just a poke cake in disguise. You all know about poke cakes by now, right? Bake a cake, poke it to death with a fork, pour sweetened condensed milk over the top, and let it cool. We’ve done this before, so you should be familiar with the drill by now.
But for this cake I added an extra fun topping. Jarred raspberry preserves and a light lemon mousse topping finish this cake off perfectly.
I think this raspberry lemon cake would be the perfect treat to bring to every summer picnic and party. It is cool and refreshing and lemonlicious!
