Lemon and Cream Cheese Layered Cake Recipe

This recipe walks the line between being a fresh lemon flavored cake and a tangy cheesecake. The layers are baked together so when it comes out of the oven all that’s left to do is to chill it and dust it with a little powdered sugar.

Oil and flour a baking pan. This is an 8 inch/20 cm springform – if you have a springform pan it’s a nice choice for this because the cake is not being frosted so it’s hard to hide any dings from pulling it out of the pan.

 

Pour half of the batter into the bottom of the pan.
