Hope all you Moms out there had a great day!
We spent the afternoon at the In-Laws for lunch. I brought dessert ☺
Lemon Layer Cake
- Golden Pound Cake 365 gram(s) Sliced Lengthwise – this took 1 (285g) cake and another (80g) slice from a second cake
- Cool Whip Sugar Free, 1.5 cups
- Sugar, .75 cup
- Cornstarch, 3 tablespoons
- Water, tap, 2/3c
- Lemon Juice, .25 cup
- Lemon Peel, 1 tsp
- 1/4tsp salt
- 1tbsp butter or margarine
In a 1.5 quart saucepan add the sugar, cornstarch and salt. Turn on the heat to medium high and slowly add the water, stirring constantly. Once all the water has been added, boil an additional minute until the syrup is thick then shut off the heat. Add in butter and lemon peel, stir until the butter is melted. Add in the lemon juice. Pour into a chilled bowl, cover and refrigerate 1-2 hours until set.
To assemble, lay 2 pieces of wax paper on a platter and center the first piece of cake. Spoon on 2 tbsp lemon filling and 4 tbsp cool whip. Continue until you’ve used all the cake slices. You’ll probably have leftover lemon filling. Garnish with strawberries. Pull the wax paper out and chill 1 hour before serving.

(Lemon Filling from Betty Crocker cookbook)
I also made a pecan pie for the MIL as it’s her favorite:
This thing has 1/2 day’s worth of fat and calories in 1 slice! I didn’t have any but I was told it came out good – and this is my first attempt at pecan pie!
The rest of my day continued as normal – dinner, baths, laundry and bedtime stories.
Off to see my Momma today!! Have a Mah-velous Monday!
