Lemon Ice Box Cake

Pucker up, sit down and shut the front door, we are doing a no-bake lemon ice box recipe that’s bang’n.

Yep, bang’n. It’s full of lemon goodness—but not so lemon-y that’ll make your eyes cross. It has just enough lemon to be refreshing and just enough sweetness to keep you spooning for more.

Have I convinced you? Are you on the fence? How about if I tell you it’s a no-bake treat that comes together easily and quickly? The hardest part will be the wait. Okay, maybe the egg-separating if you aren’t use to that. Or if you are like me and trying to work with an ankle-biter yanking at your yoga pants, it might make your hands unsteady and leave you puncturing the yolk.

    I made this cake and i realy like the flavor,
    that is why I have to ask:
    Maybe its only me being lame, bit after a night
    In the freezer, I took it out to the fridge, but then
    the whole thing got soft like yoghurt (and did a huge
    mess in the fride :/). I also thought that maybe
    we should have eaten it right after taking it out from
    the freezer, but
    then it was super hard – not realy something you
    can slice up nicely.
    Any idea where did I go wrong?
    The only thing i did different was substituting the yoghurt
    for unflavored greek yoghurt (and added some vanila and
    sugar myself)
