Strawberry Lemon Snack Cake

Sweet and sour and absolutely perfect for a snack or a little treat after dinner!

I have been trying for years to get behind lemon sweets and so far, to date, it has failed. I just don't like purely lemon desserts. Now throw a berry in there and I love it. I knew I would enjoy this dessert because strawberry is my favorite berry with lemon. I loved the consistency of the cake. It sort of reminds me of a cobbler in some ways. The lemon was just in the glaze although it would be great with a little lemon zest in the batter, in my opinion.

What you need:
  • 1 cup unsalted butter, at room temperature
  • 1 3/4 cups granulated sugar
  • 4 large eggs
  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 1 1/2 tsp. baking powder
  • 1 1/2 cups strawberry pie filling
  • 1 1/4 cups powdered sugar
  • 2 Tbsp. lemon juice
  1. Beat butter and sugar until creamy.
  2. Then add eggs and beat until combined.
  3. Add flour, salt, and baking powder and mix until just combined.
  4. Remove and reserve 1 cup batter.
  5. Spread the remaining batter evenly on a foil-lined 15x10-inch baking sheet that has been sprayed with nonstick spray.
  6. Top with pie filling leaving an inch around the edges.
  7. Drop small spoonfuls of the reserved 1 cup batter on the top of the pie filling.
  8. Bake in a preheated 350 degree oven for 22 to 25 minutes.
  9. Remove from oven and let cool.
  10. Whisk together powdered sugar and lemon juice in a small bowl.
  11. Drizzle on top and let set before cutting and serving.
