  • ISO: Lemon Cake from Macaroni Grill restaurant
    Has anyone had the Lemon Passion Cake from the chain restuarant, Macaroni Grill? It was wonderful and I would sure like to make it. I searched the internet for an hour on several of the common recipe websites and did not find it. Sure hope someone here knows how to make it! I love lemon!

    Good afternoon, everyone!

    Although you cannot copy this recipe, they do give you the option to print it and/or to email it. Perhaps you could try emailing it to yourself and see if a copy of the recipe is sent or if it is just a link. Just a suggestion.

    Have a great day

    Macaroni Grill's Lemon Passion


    Tres Leche:
    12 oz evaporated milk
    1 cup sweetened condensed milk
    1 cup heavy cream
    1 teaspoon vanilla
    1 tablespoon light rum

    Cake:
    1 cup sifted flour
    1 tablespoon baking powder
    1/4 cup melted butter
    1/2 teaspoon. lemon extract
    1/2 cup milk scalded
    6 egg yolks
    1 cup sugar

    Mousse:
    1 lemon zested and juiced
    2 tablespoons simple syrup
    1 package unflavored gelatin
    1 cup heavy cream -- chilled
    1 cup lemon curd -- your favorite recipe
    2 cups heavy cream

    Topping:
    2 cups sweetened whipped cream

    Chill the bowl and wire whip of an electric mixer in the freezer.

    Whisk together flour and baking powder; keep scalded milk hot. In an electric mixer beat eggs until thick and lemon colored. Gradually beat in sugar and lemon extract. Quickly add flour mixture. Stir just until mixed. Gently stir in hot milk mixture. Pour into greased 9 x 9 x 2-inch pan. Bake in 350 degrees oven for 30 to 35 minutes. Cool completely.

    While cake is baking combine the ingredients for the tres leche and set aside.

    Remove a slice horizontally from both the top and bottom of the cooled cake. You will want the center slice to be approximately 1/2" thick. Return the center slice to the baking pan. Save remaining cake for another purpose. Drizzle some of the tres leche sauce over the cake but not so much as to make it soggy.

    In a small saucepan combine the lemon juice, 2 tablespoons simple syrup and gelatin. Stir to soften the gelatin. Place over low heat and cook until the gelatin dissolves, stirring constantly. Remove from the heat and pour into a mixing bowl.

    Remove the bowl and whip from the freezer and add the heavy cream. Whip the cream until soft peaks form. Combine the gelatin mixture, lemon zest and lemon curd. Mix well. Add the lemon mixture to the whipped cream. Continue to beat until the cream forms stiff peaks.

    Spread lemon cream over cake and place in the refrigerator to set - 3 to 4 hours.

    To serve, pour tres leche sauce on a plate, top with a square of the cake and dollops of the whipped cream. Drizzle with a tiny bit of the sauce.

    Thanks for posting this. I had just looked at it on the TSR site and knew someone would post it on the BB.
    It sounds good!

    homesweethome - I have your list of postings bookmarked because I thought you always posted the TSR recipes? Did I miss something? I've been away from the BB for awhile..but I have always enjoyed your postings. Thank you for them. *hugs*

    Hi

    I have had the recipe for a long long time, this is not TSR Recipe.

    I wish I had it but I don't and
    if I had it I sure would post it for
    everybody.

    Whomever is making the ruckus isn't
    going to scare me off, it takes a lot
    more than a big mouth to scare me.

    Have a great day and I apologize, when I posted this I didn't know either that it was TSR recipe.

    If someone wants to e-mail me the
    recipe I will post it, I am not
    scared of them.
