Limoncello Cream Torte

Cheesecake Factory Copycat Recipe

1 cup unsalted butter, softened
2 cups granulated sugar
4 large eggs, room temperature
1 1/2 cups self rising flour
1 1/4 cups all purpose flour
1 cup milk
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 teaspoon lemon extract

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease and flour 3 (9 inch) round cake pans.

Cream the butter. Then add the sugar and beat until light and fluffy, approximately 5 minutes. Add the eggs one at a time, beating well after each. Add the flour in four parts, alternating with the milk. Mix in the vanilla and lemon extracts.

Divide the batter evenly between the three cake pans. Bake at 350 degrees for 20-30 minutes. Remove immediately from pans and allow to cool completely.

After the cake has cooled, pour a mixture of 4 tablespoons Limoncello and 1/4 cup lemon juice over each layer. Be careful not to make the cake soggy, more or less liquid may be needed.

Filling Between Layers
1 cup heavy whipping cream
8 ounces mascarpone cheese
2 tablespoons unsalted butter, softened
1/3 cup granulated sugar
4 tablespoons Limoncello liqueur
1 teaspoon lemon extract

Beat all ingredients together until soft peaks are formed. Spread evenly between the cooled cake layers. Optional: sprinkle with finely grated lemon rind.

1 cup unsalted butter, softened
1/4 cup solid vegetable shortening
5 cups (about 1 lb) confectioner's sugar
6 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
3 tablespoons Limoncello
2 tablespoons lemon flavored gelatin

Dissolve the gelatin in lemon juice and Limoncello. Mix all ingredients together with electric mixer at medium speed until you reach the desired consistency. For a yellow color add a few drops of yellow food coloring.
Keep the cake chilled, allow to warm a few minutes before serving.


  1. Is lemon flavored gelatin the same as jello? If not where can I buy it?

  2. How about the Savoirdi cookies in the middle mascarpone filling?
