Lemon Cream Cheese Crumb Cake – fluffy lemon cake with a creamy cheesecake layer and a crumb topping.
Weekend baking has the best results. You have time for it, you are in the mood for it and you will not only pay attention to details but indulge in them.
This cake is a result of such weekend. I didn’t even plan on sharing it on the blog. It was just supposed to be a lazy weekend crumb cake. But then I reached for a lemon and a brick of cream cheese and I knew that the cake will be far from plain. It’s a sweet sunshine with citrus notes – just what the weekend needs!
You may already know, that when it comes to crumb cakes or coffee cakes, I have high standards. My Best Apple Crumb Cake is the perfect example. It has the thickest crumb topping layer you have ever seen and drizzled with caramel sauce, makes for a fabulous treat. My Lemon Blueberry Crumb Cake uses a shortcut (a pie filling) and makes for a gorgeous and scrumptious dessert. By the way – coffee cakes do not have actual coffee in them, they are just called that way as they are usually served along a cup of coffee in the afternoon.
The idea of combining a crumb cake and a cheesecake into a one glorious dessert – best ever! This cake is crazy delicious! The lemon cake layer is soft and fluffy, the cheesecake layer is creamy with a nice lemon flavor and the crumb topping adds crunch and sweetness. This cake has three layers of texture and flavor yet is so easy to make, you won’t really need a whole afternoon to make it. Whole thing comes together in one hour so you can enjoy a good piece of it with a cup of tea or coffee on a lazy afternoon.
