AB #18 : Drooling Lemon Layer Cake with Homemade Lemon Curd

What's more salivating , drooling and .............. than having a piece of chilled Lemon Layer Cake made from homemade Lemon Curd ? For those who follow my blog frequently will know that I actually can't resist Lemon. I love lemon from the head to the very tiny roundy toe ... if there is such word. LOL. The lemon scent is simply yummy .
I made the lemon curd a day ahead and chilled it in the fridge overnight. I actually leave it to reach roo,m temperature before using it for this layer cake. I am so happy with the results.. Stunningly Yummy Lemony Lemon Layer Cake ..
I was plain lazy to search for layer cake recipe online , as all I wanted was just a simple lemon layer cake. So I am actually trying to be creative. Seems that this is the easiest layer cake ever. I simply love this cake. Hmmm... Now that I realise I dun talk or brag a lot yeah ..LOL... Well I can't help it , born to be so ... LOL


Lemon Layer Cake 
I have adapted the cake recipe from Chef Alex Goh's recipe book Fruity Cake with some minor changes
Vanilla Sponge Cake
Ingredients 
6          Large Eggs
100g    Caster Sugar [ Original recipe calls for 180g ]
2tsp     Pure Vanilla Extract [ Original recipe calls for 1/2 tsp ]
165g    All Purpose Flour [ I used Cake Flour ]
100g    Melted Butter
Lemon Curd [ get the recipe here ]
Lemon Buttercream / any frosting of your choice

Method
1.   Pre heat oven to 180C . Grease and line one 2 7" round pan with parchment paper
2.   Mix eggs, sugar and vanilla extract in a mixing bowl. Beat at medium high speed until light and fluffy
3.  Fold in flour gently until all well combine . Pour in melted butter and mix well
4.  Pour batter into 2 prepared pan and bake at 180C for 35 minutes . Remove from oven and take out to  cool on wire rack immediately.

To assemble 
1.   Cut each cake into 2 layer . Place one payer of cake at the base on the cake board .
2.   Spread 1/3 cup of lemon curd evenly on the cake.
3.   Top with another layer of cake and repeat the above process until all cake is finish. Chill cake in the fridge for 2 hours before frosting with lemon buttercream or any other frosting of your choice
