Beautifully frosted lemon cake with lemon cream cheese frosting

One of the most exciting and most humbling parts of food blogging is hearing from you when you try one of my recipes.

It is incredibly meaningful to know that, of the thousands (maybe millions) of recipes out there, you selected one of mine.

Of all the wonderful lemon recipes on my site (from the Best Lemon Bars to Grammy’s Lemon Cream Pie), this fluffy lemon cake takes the crown.

In the comments below, you’ve called this lemon layer cake:

  • “Super moist”
  • “Easy”
  • “Perfectly fluffy,” and even
  • “The best lemon cake recipe in the world”

This cake has played a special role in our family history, and your kinds words fill my heart with joy.

As for the frosting: its creaminess is exquisite. It’s not overly sweet, thanks to the tang of the cream cheese to balance it out.

Between the cake and the frosting, the amount of lemon is perfect. You’ll find it clearly present, but it won’t make you pucker.

Every bite of this homemade lemon cake combines a burst of citrus with melt-in-your-mouth buttery tenderness. It’s elegant, easy to make from scratch, and can turn any day into a sunny celebration.
