Strawberry Lemon Buttermilk Cake


Posted by - Rena

I borrowed Colleen's recipe for Strawberry Buttermilk Muffins and made a cake instead of muffins. If I make it again, I would make muffins.

I have never used lemon curd but I walk by it all the time in the store, pick it up and then put it right back down. I'm sort of a lemon curd stalker with commitment issues. Once Colleen mentioned that she put lemon curd in her muffins (oh god I can't help but laugh after watching Betty White's "muffin" skit on Saturday Night Live last weekend) I decided to take the plunge and buy a jar. I used Colleen's recipe exactly and I put a spoonful of curd in the batter as well. I should have put another container of strawberries in because can you really ever have enough? No.


The cake was super duper moist and fluffy. The only thing that didn't work perfectly was the topping but I think it's because I used lemon curd instead of butter. I can see how it would work better on muffins but it was still delicious. I also smear a little bit of lemon curd on the top before I eat a slice. Clearly, I'm now in a relationship with lemon curd. We are in love!

It looks good! I <3 lemon curd. It's very, very good parfait-style with a little vanilla pudding and cool whip. Mmmmmm...

I love lemon curd. I'm sorry the topping didn't turn out quite as planned but I bet the flavor was spot on!
