I love all things lemon. Lemon meringue is my favorite pie. Lemon is my favorite Starburst and my favorite Skittles flavor. I have a board on Pinterest just of lemon recipes. So, when I saw this recipe, I knew that I had to give it a shot. Now, when you read through the recipe you will probably think, “Wow, that does look easy.” Well, I looked at it and thought, “Wow, that looks easy but I’m going to be even more lazy when I make it.” So, instead of making a lemon curd, I used a store bought one. I know. I know. I could’ve easily made a homemade curd, and I very well might do that the next time I make this one to ensure that it’s super lemony. But, when you plan on making something for an occasion like Easter, I feel like it’s perfectly fine to take some shortcuts if it means less stress and less work.
The best part of this recipe? I mean, besides just how easy it is? This is something that little girl could easily help me out with. She had the job of poking the holes into the cake. And then she had the job of eating a spoonful of Cool Whip.
The verdict? Will definitely make this one again since it was so incredibly easy but if I use store bought curd again, I think that I’ll heat it up before adding to the cooled cake so that it really seeps down into the cake. I think ensuring that the curd is pourable will also make it a little more lemony in each bite. But, all in all, a nice little cake recipe. It makes me want to play around with other poke cake recipes.
