Lemon Cake with Lemon Filling and Lemon Butter Frosting ๐Ÿ‹
Every bite of this Lemon Layer Cake with Lemon Curd and Lemon Buttercream bursts with lemon flavor. A wonderfully moist lemon cake is layered with velvety smooth lemon curd and frosted with fresh lemon buttercream.

With itsโ€™ luscious lemon flavor, it is by far the best lemon cake Iโ€™ve ever had.
I wanted to create a cake that you guys like as much as my Easy Strawberry Cake. It is the cake that you make for birthdays, Motherโ€™s Day, and other celebrations time and again. I enjoy reading your comments on how much you like that cake. Hopefully, youโ€™ll enjoy this Lemon Layer Cake with Lemon Curd and Lemon Buttercream just as much.
Behind the Recipe

Besides the flavor and texture, this cake is loved is because of its ease. Very basic ingredients including a base of creamed butter + sugar, eggs, lemon, buttermilk, and flour. I love the additional tang buttermilk gives the cake, but you can use whole milk or 2% milk instead. I left out the brown sugar and replaced with more granulated sugar. No rhyme or reason hereโ€“ just didnโ€™t feel like reaching for both types of sugar this time. Between the cake and frosting, youโ€™ll need 2-3 lemons. Both the juice and zest.
