Lemon Curd Cake

This Lemon Curd Cake is so amazing and doesn’t need that many ingredients to make it! This recipe is so sweet with a tangy twist. The cake can be prepped and baked in just 30 minutes and then, ready to serve to friends, family, or just devour it by yourself. Lemon is such a good flavoring and I would blame myself for not allowing you to try out these other amazing recipes. This simple Lemon Cream Cake (Olive Garden Copycat) is just like Olive Garden’s is so worth it! Also, this Lemon Cake Roll with Blueberries is a wonderful tangy flavor with more sweet flavor from the blueberries added to it.
