My Favorite Lemon Cake Recipes for Easter Sunday!
As we’ve discussed, lemon cake recipes are perfect for a holiday table, especially the Easter holiday. I don’t know why. They JUST ARE.
Here are my VERY FAVORITE LEMON CAKE RECIPES that I think should be on your Easter table this Sunday! As a bonus, I’ve also included a few other lemon dessert recipes that I love and that would be perfect for a special occasion.
Don’t worry: these recipes are pretty, but they’re also easy, quick, and absolutely delicious. Lemon lovers in your life are gonna love you!
EASTER IS THE OFFICIAL LEMON CAKE HOLIDAY, I DON’T MAKE THE RULES.
Okay, I made that rule. But it’s TRUE, don’t you think? Don’t you want a giant, buttery, streusely, moist lemon cake for Easter? One that takes 30 minutes to make but looks kinda fancy?
Lemon Cake with Whipped Icing
Sometimes as a teacher you have these moments where your students transcend. They go up the stairs you’ve built but they don’t just reach the top: they’re suddenly flying, they’ve made their own wings, they’re higher than you knew they could go.

Whenever I’m sad I start spending more and more time wandering around in the wilderness. I’ll walk up mountains and around lakes for hours. I exercise more. I avoid going home, but I also avoid going anywhere with people. I stop responding to messages and texts. I make excuses and cancel plans.
I hide. I eat less. My clothes get louder as I get silent.
I start writing more poetry. My instagram fills with sunsets and song lyrics or goes silent all together. There are fewer new recipes or, when the new recipes are still coming, the posts are short and storyless. My voice feels like it’s trapped in a bubble.

We’re gonna talk about a hard topic and so I made you an easy cake. You have that waiting for you at the end of this post. But in the meantime, buckle up. And a forewarning: don’t leave me a comment saying you don’t want to read about this. I don’t want to live this. I wish I could turn it off or scroll past it. But I can’t. No woman can.
That being said, content warning for a discussion of sexual harassment and abuse below the cut.
