Luscious Layered Lemon Delight
Who would not enjoy this luscious layered lemon delight—an easy to make, layered lemon cake recipe? Lemon tastes tangy, sweet and sour, has a beautiful color and a singular flavor, especially when you prepare it in combination with sugar. And it does not take a lot of sugar to soften the sharp bite of lemon so that it becomes a spectacular flavor everyone loves (especially when you create it in a layered lemon cake). Plus, it is one of the prettiest colors in a food. Lemon is a flavor of summer time. Its sharp and crisp tartness seems so bright and right for the hot days of summer.

The recipe here calls for pecans to be ground and used as the base for the lemon dessert. You will find that ground nuts are a very special base for any fruit pie, or any pie or cake that calls for a cheesecake like or whipped cream filling (alone or in combination). The nuts smooth out and beautifully complement the richness of the cream and the tangy flavors of most fruits. In this lemon dessert, those flavors come together particularly well. So lemons and pecans are a great combination together in this lemon dessert. Pecans are a slightly sweet nut with a soft bite. Lemons are sharp and tart. The nuts mellow out the tartness of the lemon creating a delicious flavor combination. Milk is also part of the recipe adding still more smoothness and silkiness to the texture not to mention a nutritional punch of calcium and magnesium to this layered lemon cake. That does not make eating cake something you want to do every day, but it does give you a reason to make this layered lemon cake and feel pretty good about it. This recipe also uses a combination of pre-packaged ingredients to make this lemon dessert an easy one to pull together. It is a great starter recipe for a layered lemon cake that also uses some homemade additions to give it a fully satisfying flavor.
This lemon recipe is not very expensive to make (especially when lemons are in season), feeds lots of people, and is quick and easy to prepare. It will go well to picnics, BBQs, gatherings of friends and families, or taste delicious served up right at home. Why not try this lemon recipe at your house tonight?
