Lemon Crumb Cake – Olive Garden Copycat

Lemon Crumb Cake

So yesterday was my amazing mother’s birthday! She turned 25 for like the 17th time….so younger than me, but that’s cool, I’ll turn that again one day 😉 Anyways, she asked me to make her a cake, obviously being the baker I am I happily obliged. So I asked her what she was craving, and lemon being one of her favorite flavors she told me that. Well I don’t know about you guy’s but this Lemon Crumb Cake from Olive Garden has been one of my favorite lemon desserts for the longest time. It is so light with just the perfect amount of lemon flavor AND those crumbs!! Yum, so I knew that this was the cake that I was going to make her.  Read more

Happy Leap Day! Now that is a first that I can actually say happy on a Monday…that doesn’t happen often. But this day only comes around once every 4 years, so one should celebrate accordingly. Technically today should have been my mothers birthday…any other year. But tomorrow will suffice for her. That is cool with me though, I am making her a birthday cake this year and I haven’t gotten a chance to start on in. She is wanting a lemon cake, woohoo Spring has officially sprung! Luckily I still have a little time to contemplate what kind of cake I want. In the mean time since I am enjoying the warmer weather I bring to you these Blueberry Lemon Fritters. Read more

I hope everyone had a happy and safe Labor Day weekend. It’s that time of year again, I sent my babies back to school today. I’ve been watching all you mom’s via Facebook, Twitter and blogs sending your little ones back to school for the past month and finally today it was my turn. Almost cried, but I held it back. Figured they are getting older and I can save my tears for when the little princess starts school. Luckily she’s stuck with mom for another few years. Since I’m sharing a lovely Lemon recipe today I can still pretend that it’s still summer right? Read more
