  • 1 cup unsalted butter 2 sticks
  • 1 cup water
  • 2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 ¾ cup granulated sugar
  • 2 large eggs beaten
  • ½ cup sour cream
  • 1 teaspoon lemon extract
  • 2 teaspoon lemon zest
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 14 oz. white chocolate candy coating
  • 1 drop pink gel food coloring


  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
  • Grease a 15"x 10" baking pan or line it with parchment paper or aluminum foil. Set aside.
  • Place butter and water in a medium saucepan and bring to boil. Remove from heat.
  • In a large mixing bowl, whisk together flour and sugar.
  • In another bowl, whisk together eggs, sour cream, lemon extract, zest, baking soda and salt.
  • Add the hot butter mixture slowly to the flour mixture, whisking well.
  • Add ¼ of a cup of the butter and flour mixture to the eggs and sour cream mixture to temper it.
  • Add the rest of the hot mixture and mix well with a wooden spoon or a spatula until smooth.
  • Pour the batter into the prepared pan. Smooth out the top.
  • Bake for 20 to 25 minutes (the magic number for me was 23 minutes).
  • Let cool completely in the pan.
  • Once the cake is cooled, take it out carefully from the pan onto a cutting board. It helps to bake the cake in a parchment paper or aluminum foil lined pan as it makes taking the cake out easier.
  • Cut out the bunnies with a cookie cutter and place them on another clean baking sheet.
  • Melt chocolate candy coating in a double boiler.
  • Dip the bunnies top side down in the chocolate coating and let the excess of the chocolate drip down back into the bowl. Helping yourself with a spoon, coat the sides of the bunnies with the chocolate coating.
  • Let the bunnies sit on parchment paper lined baking sheet or on a cooling rack set over a baking sheet.
  • Once the chocolate coating is set, decorate the bunnies gluing them with dots of the remaining chocolate coating.
