This limoncello cake is perfect for dessert or even for breakfast. The light sweetness of the limoncello glaze gives the perfect added sweetness. Serve it with a cup of tea!
I've mentioned before how much I love lemon. It just lightens up any recipe. I will add lemon zest and juice to my pasta with cherry tomato sauce, it adds a wonderful flavor to my crispy chicken thighs and I even make limoncello from scratch!
As the weather cools down, I find myself drinking more and more hot tea and there is just something about tea that screams for a piece of cake or pastry to go with it! I stumbled across this recipe and it looked delicious, but I didn't have any raspberries. I also wanted a more powerful lemon flavor and decided to see if I could tweak it a little bit.
The result was a delicious slice of Lemon Heaven. It is very much like a lemon pound cake, but slightly less dense. Still - you won't need more than a thin slice to be satisfied. I ended up making a double batch and slicing and freezing the second loaf so that I can just pull a slice out whenever I want!
