Lemon is such a wonderful flavor. This Lemon Lover’s Coffee Cake is a yummy dessert or brunch treat you will love. My mom originally made this for us and I immediately added it to my recipe box for future use.
If you like lemon, you will love this. The lemon curd adds so much flavor so I encourage you to splurge a little bit in order to make this delicious lemon coffee cake.
Lemon Lover’s Coffee Cake
- 3/4 cup sugar
- 3/4 cup butter, softened
- 3/4 tsp baking powder

- Bake 23 to 26 minutes or until golden brown. Cool 15 minutes.
