Ahhhh, lemon dessers! They are my favorite (after chocolate), and they get me all excited for warm weather and sunshine! This lemon sheet cake packs a vibrant citrus punch, and the lemon cream cheese frosting is lip smacking good!
I first made this lemon sheet cake almost 2 years ago when I was pregnant with our 5th baby. I am always extremely sick during my pregnancies, and I didn’t have it in me to repeatedly test the recipe to make sure it was solid. I made it, it was wonderful, and I even brought it to a party and it was a hit. I knew it was good, but I wanted to play around with it to make it AMAZING!
My whole family loves lemon desserts, so they were pretty excited to help me perfect this recipe. You can make it in a jelly roll pan for a thin sheet cake, or use a 9×13″ pan for a thicker cake. The choice is yours – just don’t leave off the frosting!! My daughter, who doesn’t really like frosting (?!?!), said this frosting was SO good, she liked it more than the cake!!! The cream cheese keeps it from being overly sweet, and we just can’t resist that pucker from the lemon juice and lemon zest!
This cake is a winner, guys. Hope you enjoy it as much as we do!
