I’m pretty sure that I’ve mentioned before that Lemon is my absolute very favorite dessert in the world. It beats out chocolate, peanut butter and everything else for me. I’m always looking for new recipes that I can use lemon in and make some delicious desserts like this Lemon Poke Cake.
This is is such a simple dessert to make and has a really light feel. It would be a great Easter dessert or summer potluck option too. I’m sure you could think of different ways to make this cake if you’re not a lemon fan, you could use chocolate, strawberries, caramel or other fillings.
