Lemon pie cake with blueberry compote – a guest post from Mother Thyme

Lemon cake pie

I’m very excited to welcome my first guest blogger stepping in to help me out while I’m jet-setting over to NYC! Jennifer aka Mother Thyme has been a blogging friend of mine for a couple of years now. She comes up with the most amazing looking recipes and has absolutely beautiful photos. They make me want to reach into the computer and grab them – especially the one she’s sharing with you today. It may just be the recipe to christen my new lemon tree with!

 

Hi Claire K Creation readers! I’m Jennifer, the voice behind the little blog Mother Thyme. I’m thrilled to be guest posting for my good friend Claire again as she comes and visits me. Well, she isn’t coming to visit me technically, but she is going to be close, and in the same state I live in. Hopefully one day we’ll meet in real life. Claire and I have been following each other’s blog for awhile. I just adore her, and love seeing all of her “creations”.

I first guest posted for Claire a few years ago with these Angel Food Cupcakes. As delicious as they are, I see a photo update in the future. I am back with another sweet treat that is so easy to make and is so yummy.

This Lemon pie cake with blueberry compote recipe originally came from my step-mom who actually got it from her mom. It is light and airy, the perfect after dinner dessert when you are not looking for something heavy. This pie is great on its own, but I love to top it with a simple blueberry compote. I love the combination of lemons and blueberries, which really works well together in this dessert.

The top of the pie can get rather brown. If you do try this recipe, don’t be alarmed if it does, it is completely normal. This creates a nice top crust, and a soft center. To hide the top, I dust it with powdered sugar.

If you are a lemon lover like I am, this is a must try. Whether you are having a dinner party with friends, or a hosting a weekend brunch this is a dessert everyone will rave about!

Thanks so much Claire for having me today!

    This is the second lemon pie I’ve seen in as many days. I think the universe is telling me something ;D

  10. After seeing this in my email I just had to make it. I thought it had a wonderful flavor but wasn’t sure if mine set up properly. I was wondering what the consistency is supposed to be like. Mine was a little soft on the bottom but firm and more cake like on the top where it browned.

  12. I wonder if it is possible to freeze this pie? :)
