EDITOR’S NOTE (June 11, 2019): Updated recipe (less lemon juice). Caramelized top crust is optional. Added new photos. See recipe video posted on my Facebook fan page.
This cake has a lemon-flavored cream cheese filling with a caramelized top crust. The bottom crust is a yellow cake with a cookie-like texture.
This cake has a lemon-flavored cream cheese filling. The bottom crust is a yellow cake with a cookie-like texture. Combined cake ingredients in a zippered plastic bag (or use a bowl). No stand mixer required. However, electric mixer used to combine filling. Fun baking project for adults and children.
I added a creative twist by combining the cake crust in a freezer bag. No stand mixer required. Used an electric mixer for the filling. A fun baking project for teens and adults.
Also famously known as Chess Cake which is made with 4 cups of powdered sugar. I tried it. Too sweet. The next time, I used 3 cups of powdered sugar and added lemon juice. Superb!
A rich sweet dessert for any occasion.
