Hi Everyone…

I’m in search of a recipe for the Olive Garden Lemon Cream Cake. Any help would be greatly appreciated!!

Olive Garden’s Lemon Cream Cake
Category: Dessert - Cake


1 3/4 cups cake flour
1 tablespoon baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup white sugar
1/2 cup vegetable oil
6 egg yolks
3/4 cup water
1 tablespoon lemon zest
6 egg whites
1/2 teaspoon cream of tartar
3/4 cup white sugar
1 cup heavy whipping cream
2 1/2 cups lemon pie filling
8 slices lemon

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). In a large bowl, combine flour, baking powder, salt, and 1/2 cup sugar. Add oil,egg yolks, water and lemon rind. Beat with an electric mixer until smooth. In a small bowl, beat egg whites and cream of tartar until peaks form. Gradually add 3/4 cup sugar, and beat until very stiff and shiny peaks form. Fold 1/3 of the whites into the batter, then quickly fold in remaining whites until no streaks remain. Turn batter into ungreased 10 inch tube pan. Bake at 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) for 60 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Invert cake and cool completely in pan. When cool, loosen edges and shake pan to remove cake.

Beat cream to stiff peaks. Fold in lemon filling. Chill until stiff.

Slice cake horizontally into 3 equal layers. Fill layers with 1/3 cup of filling. Spread remaining filling on top layer. Decorate with lemon slices.

The lemon creme cakes filling almost tastes like it has some kind of cream cheese or something in it. . the recipe thats posted does not have any ingrediants that sounds like it would match the recipe. .Has anyone tried it and does it taste like the cake at Olive Garden. . Lets hope so I love that cake!! :smiley: Amy

Thank You Truleelee for the recipe. I have to agree with Amy though, that the original cake does have more of a cream cheese/cheesecake texture to the filling and I don’t see that happening with these ingredients… However, I am definitely going to try it anyway. Thanks again for the help!!

I have been looking for this recipe also, and I found this, it looks to be just like the olive garden’s recipe…
