Great lemon taste, very good on carrot cake.
- 8 ounces cream cheese, softened
- 1⁄3 cup butter, softened
- 3 tablespoons lemon juice
- 1 teaspoon grated lemon, rind of
- 4 cups powdered sugar
- Beat together cream cheese, butter and lemon juice.
- Add peel.
- Gradually add powdered sugar; beat until smooth and creamy.
The flavor and texture of this frosting is great. However, with w cups of powdered sugar is was like soup. I added an entire box (1 lb.) to the cheese butter mixture, and it still will not hold its shape. So instead of decorating the cake I just kinda drizzled the frosting over the cake. Maybe I'll put a little frosting in condiment cups and serve it along for dipping, hate to just pitch it. Next time ( cause I like the flavor) I'll reduce the lemon juice to 1 tbsp. and see what happens.
I halved this recipe and put on a lemon pound cake. Devine frosting. Thank you for a perfect recipe!
I loved this recipe!! I use it on a tripple lemon cake...lemon cake layers soaked in lemon cheese curd...iced messy with this frosting...set for 24 hours...its to die for!
