Lemon Cake Pie by: Betty

"All you do is mix up the ingredients and then put them into a pie shell and “poof” miraculously during baking, it separates into a lemon curd on the bottom.
And the lightest, fluffiest cake you can imagine on top of the lemon curd, making cake on the top.
The fun part of it is that it will work with any combination of flavors." Betty
