Light & Lemony Jelly Roll with Raspberry Cream Filling: Baked Sunday Mornings

With the baking luck I have been having lately, I was a bit hesitant to try this recipe.  The last lemon recipe I did was a huge disappointment, but normally, all the Baked recipes I try end up to be a success.  This was no exception.  I have to say that this is the first time I have made a jelly roll.  I was quite surprised with the quick bake time of the cake and how easy it all was to put together.  Yay!  A good recipe and good result!  That makes my heart sing!

The brightness of the lemon complimented the raspberry cream perfectly.  The cream filling is delicious and not overly sweet.  The cake was light and moist and flavorful.  I was a little bit afraid that the zests of 5 lemons would be too much, but it wasn't at all overpowering.  It was just perfect!

Another beautiful dessert that could be used for your Easter 
dinner and one that is not at all hard to prepare.
It looks like Spring time and tastes so fresh and light it would be 
the perfect end to any meal!  This one is going over to my Mom's house.  It is her 87th birthday tomorrow and I am bringing this along with a 
Key Lime Cheesecake.

This one gets 2 big thumbs up from me!  Please take a look to see what the other bakers did here.  And of course you want to make this!  
Get the recipe right here!

Next in the oven for the Baked group is Easter Coconut Sheet Cake.  I probably won't partake in that one...or perhaps I will go rogue 
and make something else!

Until next time...
Have a wonderful and blessed Easter!

  2. This was good, wasn't it? I love your fleur de lys platter!

  3. Glad to know you found a lemon recipe you liked. Happy birthday to your mom!

  4. Lovely! Yes, this is a really nice springy cake. It was my first jelly roll as well, and I was also hesitant due to a string of re-dos lately! Glad it worked out for both of us. :)

  5. Beautiful! This cake looks wonderful and screams spring! Great job!
