Easter Dessert Recipe: Lemon Truffle Cake

Here’s the perfect dessert for Easter: Lemon Truffle Cake. It’s a four-layer white cake with a creamy lemon filling. The “lemon truffle” consists of lemon curd with white chocolate and cream cheese mixed in. It’s pretty much to-die-for.

Here’s a photo how-to:

I recently tested this recipe by serving it to friends at a pre-Easter dinner party. It’s safe to say that we all absolutely loved it… kids too. The cake is very tender and those layers of lemon truffle filling are incredible. I dare you to hold-back from eating the truffle filling by the spoonful.  If you’re making this cake ahead of time, I’d put together the layers & spread the lemon curd on top… then wait until a few hours before serving to ice on the whipped cream. We had leftovers for a few days after the party, and the leftovers were just as delicious as the day it was served.

    Oh, lemon curd – are there any more beautiful words in the English language? I have four lemons on my counter and methinks this cake is where they’re going.

    Looks fabulous. I love lemon curd. I could probably just sit and eat that with a spoon. But this does look better.

    Gorgeous! I’m a fan of citrus desserts this time of year… especially lemon and lime! This cake looks wonderful, and I love that it’s topped with lemon curd instead of a heavier icing like buttercream or cream cheese. Yum!

    Although I’m already set for our Easter menu, I haven’t decided what to do for dessert as there are lots of choices to consider, but this Lemon Truffle Cake looks and sounds so good that I must include in my dessert list!

    Great set-by-step photos you got here, by the way. Made me hungry.

    Um, yum! This looks delicious (and pretty). You’re slideshow for Easter on the main page looks great, too! I’m going to show my mom; she and I are still brainstorming recipes for this weekend!

    I am so excited about this recipe. I just saw individual slices of an almost identical cake at whole foods for $2 a slice. It looked amazing. I had a hard time deciding on the lemon truffle cake or a Chocolate Peanut Bar. Guess which one won? The chocolate of coarse!

    Hi Lori- I have seen this recipe a few times and am considering making as it looks so wonderful. I was wondering, if I didn’t want a whipped cream frosting on the outside, what would you use instead? Maybe a lemon cream cheese buttercream to match the lemon/cream cheese inside? Thank you,
