Total Time5 hrs
Servings: 9 -12 Mini Cakes or 1 8 in. Cake
- 4 Eggs separated/room temp
- 1 tbsp Water
- 1/2 cup + 2 tbsp Sugar I used Zulka
- 1/2 cup 1 stick Salted Butter (melted)
- 3/4 cup Flour
- 1 1/2 cups Milk room temp
- 2 tsp Vanilla Extract
- Juice and Zest of 1 Lemon
- 1/2 cup Lemon Simple Syrup + addition syrup for the topping
- 1 cup Whipping Cream
- 3 tbsp Instant Lemon Pudding Powder
- 1/4 cup Confectioners' Sugar
Preheat oven to 325 F.
Whip egg whites until stiff and transfer to a separate bowl.
Beat egg yolks, vanilla, sugar, and water until light fluffy yellow.
Add butter and beat for another minute or so.
Add flour and beat until fully combined.
Add in milk, lemon juice, lemon zest, and lemon syrup until thoroughly mixed.
Beat in egg whites on low until just incorporated, batter may look a little clumpy, that's okay.
Pour batter into greased 8 inch pan, you can also use a 10 inch round pan, but the layers won't be quite as distinct, like in mine.
Bake for 60 minutes, remove from oven and let set in pan for at least three hours.
If you are making small cakes like I did, using a biscuit cutter to cut them out of the large cake.
Spread [Lemon Simple Syrup| out on top of the cake.
Pipe lemon cream on top of cake and syrup.
Top with a Candied Lemon slice.
Dust with Confectioners' Sugar and serve.
