lemon layer cake with fresh berries

Spring is my favorite time of year, aside from fall. I love the in-between seasons when the weather’s more mild and I get to bring out my clothes that have been in storage for the last several months. It’s almost like having a new wardrobe. Isn’t it nice to find clothes you forgot you had? 😉 

Having a cold on top of allergies for the last several days hasn’t been fun, but the sun shining and the birds chirping somehow makes it a bit more bearable. The sickness started from my hubby who must’ve picked something up from work. He passed it to me and it has making its way through the family. Of course my hubby is totally better now, as I sit around with my tissues, sneezing every five minutes. It’s so not fair. On top of that he keeps reminding me that this is how he felt a few days ago…”yep, that’s exactly how I felt,” and “see, I wasn’t exaggerating.” I’m like, of course this is how you felt, you’re the one who brought the sickness into the house and infected the rest of us! 


Ingredients
Lemon-Berry Cake

  • 2 cups gluten-free flour (I use Bobs Red Mill Gluten-Free 1-to-1 Baking Flour)
  • 1 cup Super Fine Blanched Almond Flour* (see notes below for substitution)
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ½ cup softened butter (can use dairy-free)
  • 3 large eggs
  • 2 tablespoons coconut oil
  • 1 cup honey or maple syrup (or combo of both)
  • ⅔ cup almond milk or other milk of choice
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • zest of 2-3 large lemons, to taste
  • Lemon Whipped Cream (recipe below)
  • 3-4 cups mixed berries (some sliced and halved for in between layers)
  • edible flowers, optional

Lemon Whipped Cream :

  • 16 oz. regular or dairy-free cream cheese or mascarpone
  • 1–2 (14 oz) cans coconut cream or full-fat coconut milk refrigerated overnight (about 1¾ cup firm coconut cream, liquid discarded. Can also use 1 cup regular whipping cream if not dairy-free)
  • 3-5 tablespoons honey or other sweetener of choice (more or less to taste)
  • juice and zest from 1 lemon (more or less to taste)

Instructions
Cake:

  • This cake makes two 8-inch or three 6-inch cakes. To make a 3 layer 8-inch cake, use 1½ cake recipe.
  • Preheat oven to 325F. Grease cake pans and line the bottom with a parchment paper circle (cut to fit the bottom.) Set aside.
  • Combine flours, baking powder, and salt in a large mixing bowl. Add softened butter, eggs, coconut oil and sweetener. Begin beating together with the flour mixture. Slowly mix in the milk, vanilla extract, and lemon zest. Scrape the bottom of the bowl to make sure all the flower is evenly incorporated.
  • Evenly distribute cake batter into the pans and place on the middle rack in the preheated oven. Bake for 25-35 minutes OR until cake is golden brown, center is set, and a toothpick inserted near the center comes out with a few moist crumbs. Bake time will vary upon pan and thickness of batter.
  • Remove from the oven and let cool for a bit, then run a knife along the edge of the cake (if sticking to the pan) and invert cakes onto a wire rack to cool completely.

Whipped Cream:

  • In a large mixing bowl, begin to beat the cream cheese until smooth, about 1-2 minutes. Add sweetener and lemon juice/zest and continue to beat until fluffy. Add cold, hardened coconut cream and beat on high until light and fluffy, a few more minutes. Taste and adjust sweetener or lemon flavoring. Keep refrigerated until ready to use.
  • If using regular whipping cream, beat whipping cream separately until fluffy (about 3-4 minutes) and then fold it into the cream cheese mixture.
