How to make it

  • 1. Prepare cake following the directions on the box. Pour the
  • batter into a greased 10-inch cake pan or springform pan. Bake
  • at 350 degrees for 40 to 45 minutes. Allow cake to cool
  • completely.
  • 2. Make lemon cream filling by mixing cream cheese and powdered
  • sugar in a medium bowl with an electric mixer until smooth. Mix
  • in lemon juice.
  • 3. Whip cream in a large bowl with an electric mixer on high
  • speed until stiff peaks form. Fold whipped cream into cream
  • cheese mixture.
  • 4. Make crumb topping by combining flour and powdered sugar in a
  • medium bowl. Add butter and vanilla extract. Use pastry cutter
  • or your hands to mix cold butter into the flour and sugar. Cut
  • in butter until mixture is crumbly - a not so even mixture of
  • little and larger lumps of flour and sugar covered butter. You
  • want a very crumbly consistency with pieces no bigger than a
  • pea. Keep topping refrigerated until you are ready to use it.
  • 5. After cake has cooled, slice it in half through the middle
  • and remove the top. Spread all but 1/2 cup of the lemon cream
  • mixture onto the bottom half of the cake, then carefully replace
  • the top half of the cake.
  • 6. Spread the remaining 1/2 cup of cream filling over the top
  • and sides of the cake. Sprinkle the crumb topping on top of the
  • cake and press it onto the sides of the cake.
  • 7. Chill the cake for at least 3 hours before serving. Serve
  • cake slice topped with powdered sugar tapped through a stainer.
  • Serves 12.
