Lemon Sheet Cake

I know we are well into the fall season, and fall includes food with apples and pumpkins, but when
I was asked to make a cake last week, I was craving LEMON!  Yes, I am a total odd ball.

This cake is quick and easy to whip up, feeds a crowd, and the longer it sits, the better it gets.  I had a piece today, and 5 days later, it was still crazy yummy.
The cake is light yet moist, and the cream cheese frosting offers a creamy taste, that pairs wonderfully with the tartness of the lemon cake.
Make this. You will not be disappointed!

Here is a helpful tip.

When I am testing a new cake recipe, I want to be able to taste it, to make sure it is yummy, but how do you taste a cake, without it being noticeable?

Easy, I simply baked a little of the batter in a mini loaf pan!  You could also do a cupcake.  Either is fine.  Doing this, you can make sure that the cake you are serving to a special guest, at a church potluck, or delivering to a dear friend who lost a love one, has been taste tested and yummy.  Because we all know, not every recipe is yummy.  But this one...OH YEP...YUMMY!

  1. OMG!!! I'm pretty sure we were split at birth!! I LOVE ANYTHING lemon!!!! This sounds wonderful!!!

  2. This cake looks so yummy! My mom made lemon cupcakes for Mellissa's baby shower last weekend, they were super yummy, so I agree lemon=yum!

  3. Mmm, I love everything lemon. Blueberry loaf with lemon glaze anyone?? This looks so good, especially since the frosting to cake ratio is smaller.

    What a great idea to test the recipe. You're one smart cookie Kim.
