Although this is called lemon cream cake, it is actually a pie. It sounds like a lemon custard pie, which would be nice for a summer evening, chilled and topped with a bit of whipped cream. Delicious! I might have to make this for my mother’s birthday if she will let me. :-) And, although you might already realize this, where the recipe calls for the rind of the lemon, it should be finely grated.
