Lemon Cake Recipe with Raspberries
This Lemon Cake Recipe is lightly sweet, has a hint of lemon flavor, and is topped with raspberries. A confirmation that summer is here!!!
Servings 8 servings
for the frosting-
- 3 oz. cream cheese room temperature
- 1/2 cup heavy whipping cream
- 1/2 cup powdered sugar
- 1/2 lemon zested
- 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
- lots of fresh raspberries
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Cut a circle out of parchment paper to line the bottom of an 8 or 9-inch round cake pan. Lightly grease the pan and set aside.
In a large bowl, whip butter with sugar until light and fluffy. Stir in eggs, vanilla, and lemon zest. Scrape sides and whip again. Alternate mixing in flours with milk. Scrape sides and mix until all ingredients are incorporated.
Spoon into prepared pan, smooth the top and bake 30-40 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean when inserted. Cool 15 minutes and then remove the cake from pan. Cool completely before frosting.
For the Frosting:
Whip cream cheese in a stand mixer to soften. Slowly stream in cream to incorporate evenly. If lumps start to form, stop mixing, scrape sides, and continue to mix. Once all cream is incorporated, the mixture should seem thick and smooth.
Stir in remaining ingredients and stir to incorporate. Once frosting seems smooth, turn the mixer on high and whip 2-3 minutes or until fluffy and light, similar to whipped cream but a little heavier.
Spread all frosting over cooled cake and top with lots of fresh raspberries. Store in refrigerator until ready to serve.
