Never Made A Lamb Cake Before – Then Start Here!


After I mentioned in an article on Wall Street Journal that I was looking for lamb cake recipes and tips, I received tons of email and recipes from all over the country!  With the help of experienced lamb cake bakers, I compiled this lamb cake primer to help everyone achieve lamb cake success!

And now that you know how to bake a great lamb cake, you can use one of these tested recipes:

This lamb cake is light, fluffy and sturdy. It also pairs really well with coconut, making this the lamb cake for Easter. I love this cake, and I think this is the one that tastes the most like my grandmother’s lamb cake!
