Lemon is one of those extremely versatile ingredients.

If you’re enjoying a cold glass of water, a lemon wedge makes it even more refreshing. And if you have a summer salad on the table, a squeeze of lemon can add a whole new dimension to the recipe.

But lemon can go much further than an accompaniment. In fact, some of my favorite treats and baked goods include lemon in the recipe! And although lemon recipes can be made year-round, they’re especially welcome during the warmer months.

So as we continue to welcome the spring season, I wanted to share a few of my favorite lemon-based favorites for you to try at home.

Lemon Recipes For Spring

The Best Lemon Poke Cake Recipe

It’s one of my newer recipes but one that you already adore… this lemon poke cake that’s easy to make, too!

The tang of this cake is just perfection. The perfect amount of sweet with that burst of lemon flavor. Then, there’s the glaze atop — it really brings the whole cake together!

I can still remember the first time I tried it. My grandma made it for me and I’ve been a fan ever since. HERE is a link to find the recipe.

Easy No-Bake Lemon Blueberry Pie

This recipe is for all my pie lovers out there. Especially those who like tart types like Key Lime pie or Lemon meringue pie.

No Bake Lemon Blueberry Pie

My Lemon Blueberry Pie is one of my easiest dessert recipes because it doesn’t require an oven. I’m not kidding!

Made with only a few simple ingredients and filled with refreshing flavors, this pie sets on it’s own only a few hours after you pop it in the refrigerator. To find the full recipe, you can click on the link HERE.

Lemon-Poppy Seed Bread

If you have a little more time and you don’t mind making use of your oven, you’ll love my Lemon-Poppy Seed Bread recipe. I created this one a while ago, but just shared it with you all a few days ago!

What’s my favorite part about this one? Well, that’s easy. You can eat it for breakfast OR dessert! If you ask me, that’s the best type of treat out there. Baking it at home? You can find all the ingredients HERE.

Lemon Blueberry Pound Cake

This is another lemon recipe I shared recently in celebration of National Pound Cake Day. All these little holidays are fun because they give me a reason to create something delicious in my kitchen!

My Lemon Blueberry Pound Cake is also one of my most popular recipes because it’s perfect for gifting and sharing. After all, one batch makes two large loaves!

Best Ever Lemon Squares

These classic lemon squares are one of my favorite treats to please my sweet tooth. They were also published in a cookbook called “Mr. Food — A Taste of QVC.”

These lemon squares are a little different from other recipes out there. The shortbread-type crust is buttery and slightly sweet. The filling is almost like lemon curd. The top becomes a bit crisp (almost meringue-like) and makes for a sinful, textured bite.

In my opinion, you can’t go wrong with a family-friendly dessert like this. To learn how to make it, you can find the recipe HERE.

I don’t know about you, but my love of lemons isn’t just about flavor and recipes. There’s something so fresh and simple about the color and shape of lemons that make them such fun to use in decorating!

Lucious Lemon Cake Bars

These lemon cake bars are delightfully sweet and citrusy. I originally thought about calling them lemon blondies, but they’re a little lighter than your classic blondies. With that said, they’re SO delicious and rich in flavor!

Refreshing and satisfying. What a great combo! Better yet? They’re easy to make!
