When I was young I lived next door to a boy named David. We were the same age, had similar interests and spent a lot of time together growing up. His mother used to make this Ladyfinger Lemon Cake all of the time.
Years later, this cake came up in a conversation with my mother and I could not believe she still had the recipe, hand written by David’s mother herself! Luckily, my mother had asked her for the recipe way back when. When I read it I couldn’t believe how easy it was to make! All you need is 2 boxes of Lemon Pie Filling and Dessert Mix, the ingredients required for the two boxes and a big bag of lady fingers. That is it! Not only is this a fabulous mix for making Lemon Meringue Pie, this recipe is an absolutely delicious alternative. This is a fabulous dessert that will impress every time!
You have so many serving options with this Ladyfinger Lemon Cake! My favorites are raspberries and whipped cream, as you can see! I am excited to hear what you choose to serve with your cake, if anything at all! Either way, you will not be disappointed!Have a look at our video for this Ladyfinger Lemon Cake recipe! I think you will be glad you did!
