5 Sweet-Tart Meyer Lemon Recipes To Try

Meyer Lemon Bundt Cake
Meyer lemons are in season right now. I happen to have a tree in my yard, so I always have a generous supply of them, however it is worth going out of your way to pick some up at your local grocery store or farmers’ market because they are a wonderful ingredient to play around with in the kitchen. If you are already well-stocked, try your hand at one of these delicious lemon-centric recipes and you’ll be hooked!

  • Meyer Lemon Pound Cake (pictured above) is a delicious twist on a classic buttermilk bundt cake recipe. The batter is spiked with both lemon zest and fresh juice, and the cake is drizzled with a bright Meyer lemon glaze before serving.
  • Meyer Lemon Meringue Pie has an intense lemon flavor, but a little bit more sweetness than a traditional lemon meringue does. Since the lemon flavor is so concentrated, you’ll pick up some of the orange and floral notes from the filling in each bite.
  • Meyer Lemon Coffee Cake is a fantastic brunch dish. The cake has lemon in both the cake batter and the crisp streusel topping. It’s a subtle lemon flavor, which means that you can still taste the tangy buttermilk that is also in the cake batter. This cake is excellent for springtime entertaining.
  • Meyer Lemon Bars are always a favorite, since they are easy to make and a great way to get a lot of lemon into a bite-sized dessert. To make these extra-special, I added Meyer lemon zest into the crust, so you’ll taste two layers of lemon flavor!
  • Meyer Lemon Curd Thumbprint Cookies deliver two recipes in one, since you need to make a (delicious) homemade lemon curd for the filling. The buttery shortbread rounds pack in a lot of lemon flavor – and these cookies look just about irresistible on a dessert tray because they are so cute.
