SMS: Lemon Icebox Cake with Fresh Strawberry Sauce


Nilla Wafer crust. Delicious lemon filling. Meringue top. Fresh Strawberry Sauce. Seriously, how could you go wrong?

This frozen dessert is the perfect spring/summer dessert! Of course, it isn't hot here in Baumholder yet, but it didn't stop me from enjoying a slice of this cake! I loved the refreshing lemon flavor, but it wasn't overly tart. It was really the perfect amount of lemon for me!

The recipe says to bake the cake in a 9" springform, but I decided to use my springform loaf pan that I bought for the December Daring Baker challenge. I have only used it that one time and I wanted to make sure that it doesn't just hide away in my cabinets forever! It was perfect for this cake, though. I made these wonderful little slices that I thought were adorable.

Oh, and of course, Happy Mother's Day!!!!! Hope all the moms out there have a fantastic day!

I copied and saved this recipe. It DOES sound like a perfect summer recipe. And I too love the feel of the words "icebox cake." Has that old homey ring to it that holds such great appeal to me.

Thanks for sharing fun recipe!

Happy Mother's Day to you!

Yummy, what a great idea putting it in a loaf pan. Bet it was much easier to slice than mine :p

Have a lovely mothers day, ours was last month so my mum got the Brooklyn Brownout cake ;)

It's already hot here, so this dessert was perfect - and I especially liked how it can be made ahead and stored in the freezer!

Your little loaf slice IS adorable! Now I'm sad that I skipped the Daring Bakers challenge in December. I could have had a cute new springform pan in my arsenal! And FYI, I bookmarked your Penne with Chicken and Sun-Dried Tomatoes recipe. It looks and sounds fantastic!
