Mother's Day Limoncello Lemon Cake

I hope everyone had a wonderful mother's day.

I always seem to be running around on Mother's day. My husband and oldest son were camping and arrived home around 9:30am when I was heading off to my mother's house for breakfast with her, my father, my brother, his girlfriend and my younger son. (he slept over because I had to work Saturday and his dad and bro were camping). I made this lemon cake to take along because sometimes I feel like I am always making chocolate dessert.
I followed the recipe from Liv Life. Follow the link above if you would like to see the recipe. I didn't change anything really; I used just lemon juice for the glaze instead of the limoncello. I certainly used the limoncello in the cake though. Additionally, I had to bake it about 47 minutes because the center was not done after 40 minutes. The edges came out a bit dry. Once I added the glaze it moistened up. The flavor was really wonderful my dad and I really enjoyed it with a few raspberries on top.

Love being a mom! ♥

  1. Hi Michelle-Thanks for visiting Cheat Day Cafe! Yes, we sanded the cupboards then primed and painted. They were some sort of cheap wood stain originally. We used kitchen and bath paint. We actually painted about 3 years ago and just did a "facelift" this spring. The cupboards get a lot of wear and tear from everyday use, and the wood stain color actually started to be exposed around the knobs. I don't think you'll need to worry about that with molding. Well, good luck and that limoncello cake looks awesome!
