My first experience of a lemon dessert recipe as a child was Lemon Meringue Pie. I loved the contrast of the sweet meringue with the sharp lemon filling. Ever since then, I’ve been a huge fan of lemony desserts and treats. Whether it’s zingy Lemon Almond Streusel Bars or rich, creamy Baked Lemon Cheesecake, there’s something wonderfully refreshing about lemon dessert recipes.
Here are some of my favourite lemon dessert recipes, shared over the years on the blog. Whether you are looking for a special dessert or something delicious to enjoy with a cup of tea “just because”, there’s a recipe (or two!) for you here. I hope you enjoy these recipes as much as my family and I do!
These sweet yet tart Lemon Almond Streusel Bars are one of my favourite treats. They are perfect alongside a cup of tea or coffee and although it’s a bit unconventional, I enjoy a piece for breakfast as well!
I made this Baked Lemon Cheesecake when doing some work with Rachel’s yogurt. It was an immediate hit with my family and a big success on the blog as well!
This raisin and ginger studded Lemon Ginger Pound Cake has a great depth of flavour and it keeps really well. I love the versatility of a good pound cake. It’s nice to have one under a cake dome in the kitchen, a few plates and a knife alongside, so people can just help themselves when they fancy a slice.
A classic British teatime treat, Lemon Drizzle Cake is a delicious loaf cake soaked with a tangy lemon syrup after baking. The perfect balance of moist, sweet and tart, this classic recipe is perfect for any occasion.
Whether you want to make cupcakes, a light, deliciously moist layer cake or even mini bundts, this Lemon and Ginger Cake recipe is perfect. A tender, moist cake with a light flavour, this recipe lends itself to any occasion.
Whether you are having friends round for a cup of tea or hosting a dinner party, my lemon dessert recipes have got you covered!
