Every time we go to Olive Garden, I make sure to leave room for a slice of their Lemon cream cake. It is one of my favorite desserts. I searched for a copy cat recipe with little hope of re-creating it successfully. I made this recipe with a homemade cake instead of a box cake and I couldn't be more pleased! It has a wonderful light lemon flavor and is very satisfying. I hope you give it a try. Very easy to make.
This is a copy of Olive Garden's Lemon Cream Cake. "Delicate white cake and lemon cream filling with a vanilla crumb topping."
Number of Servings: 12
- 1 white cake mix,prepared ( I used a homemade white cake recipe instead)
8 oz. cream cheese, softened
2 cups powered sugar
1 cup heavy whipping cream, whipped to stiff peaks
3 tbsp. lemon juice
1/2 cup all purpose flour
1/2 cup powered sugar
1 tsp. vanilla extract
4 tbsp. butter
Prepare cake as directed in a 10" round cake pan or 10" round spring form pan.
Blend cream cheese, powered sugar, and lemon juice together.
In a medium bowl, whip heavy whipping cream to stiff peaks.
Gently fold into cream cheese mixture and blend by hand. Chill until needed.
Mix flour and powered sugar in small bowl.
Crumble butter in and dribble in vanilla extract. The crumbles should be no larger than pea size.
If you have trouble crumbling mixture, chill for a few minutes. Chill until needed.
After cake is cooled, cut in half.
Spread cream cheese mixture, saving 1/2 cup, on bottom half and carefully place top layer back.
Spread rest of cream cheese mixture on the sides of cake.
Press crumb topping into sides gently.
Sprinkle the top with powdered sugar
Chill for 3 hours. Cut into 12 pie shaped slices. Makes 12 servings.
