Lemon Curd Poke Cake

Susie Hileman


This cake is very refreshing and lemon flavor is so fresh. If you like to tone down the flavor you can use half lemon juice and half water. I personally love the fresh taste. When I close my eyes I taste like I just tasted a lemon merengue pie. Perfect cake for Spring. This is my first for posting a recipe, so I think it is a nice one after such a long winter.
