Luscious Lemon Coffee Cake

Gentle Readers and Dear Friends another lovely cool and breezy morning to enjoy here by the Bay.  I watch the news in the morning and evening and the weather channel whenever "something" is going on in the South East.... can we say TS Debbie.....  I just see the temps going up and up... if I enjoyed the warm/hot weather I could get some by just crossing the Golden Gate Bridge over into Marin County and driving 10 minutes... the heat spirals up quickly over there - in fact we are surrounded by heat and hot-ness.  "They" are saying we are to be getting warmer towards the weekend.... we shall see.  

Yesterday was damn near perfect in the afternoon when we got down to the pool - mid 70's slight breeze and a warm pool.....  I threw some steaks on the grill and we had our Sunday evening Steak and baked potato meal a day late. Rico's got together a green salad and it was a perfect addition!!

I wanted to post the link to the recipe for the coffee cake - I found it over at "Stolen Moments Cooking" a great place that Kate Miller has gotten together some super recipes, check it out.  I started out on Saturday making the lemon curd that was the filling - the recipe says you can use lemon pie filling, but when lemon curd is so very easy, why would you not make some!!



Since it only takes 4 ingredients I whipped some up.  HERE is a version with video on how to make Lemon Curd.

On sunday I pulled the curd form the fridge and it was tangy and thick!!


The recipe is very straight forward and easy to make.  HERE is the direct link.  It made one delicious cake....


I got the curd a bit too close the edge and it browned a bit ....  but when cut the cake is really beautiful...


 - and - the recipe for the Lemon Curd made enough for the cake and some extra for later!!!!

Thank you, Edgar, for sharing this recipe! Oh la la ... anything with lemon curd is a winner with me! My sister is visiting the end of the week and this delightful cake just might be our Friday morning's coffee break.

It looks so good. Lemon anything is a big hit with me. You know, these recipes you're showing aren't doing a thing for my waistline - but heck, life is short!! LOL

Yum! No baking here today, though. It was 102 when I drove past the bank thermometer.

Yummy it looks. I would need to look up a few recipes for eggless lemon curd. Love anything lemon-y. Thanks :)
