Lemon Sponge Pie


Tart and sweet that pretty much sums up a Lemon Sponge Pie.  To Read More, Click On The Recipe Title.


The batter separates into two layers while it bakes to give you somewhat of a cakey top and a smooth custardy bottom. I love this pie, it's a little bit of work but well worth the trouble. Make it with a pre-made pie crust to save you some time. If you love the fresh tart taste of lemons you'll love this pie!

I am a nut for Mexican food too and this looks really good! And another great idea for watermelon - I hope that my watermelons grow and make it without the critters eatin' 'em! I think I have about 4 going right now. Love the idea of adding some adult enhancements too LOL! I'm a nut for anything lemon too - and I love the BC classics. That pie sounds delicious!! I need to save this one to give it a spin soon!!

i also REALLY enjoy mexican food, and that casserole is drool-worthy. chased down with a swig of awesome lemonade and followed by a slab of stunning pie, and i'm a happy camper. :)

The Short (dis)Order Cook said...

That casserole is like comfort food with a kick.

The pie is so intriguiging. At first it just looked like ordinary lemon meringue pie, then I took a second look. Really interesting recipe.

The lemonade looks delicious. I'll bet it would be great with a shot of vodka in it too.

Everything sounds perfect but I have a sweet tooth so that Lemon Sponge Pie is very appealing to me, after that delicious Mexican dinner. What can I say about that drink? Did you know that watermelon is also aphrodisiac? :-)
