One Piece of Lemon Earthquake Cake with One Bite Removed


Lemon Earthquake Cake is a dessert that starts with a layer of coconut and macadamia nuts, followed by a lemon cake and cream cheese swirl, all topped and baked with white chocolate chips. Try my Oreo Earthquake Cake and Pumpkin Earthquake Cake for a couple more varieties of an earthquake cake.

Lemon Earthquake Cake

Just like an earthquake causes the earth to shift and cause cracks in the land, this Lemon Earthquake Cake has ingredients that may move around as it is being baked and you may see cracks and crevices in the top after it’s baked. But, that doesn’t change the fact that this is an ooey-gooey, lemony dessert with added nuts, coconut, and white chocolate.

  • Macadamia nuts
  • Cream cheese
  • Butter
  • Confectioners’ sugar

How to Make a Lemon Earthquake Cake

This Earthquake Cake is so easy to make, and just like the name implies, it is bursting with flavor! If you love lemon cake and cheesecake, you get the best of both desserts in this cake. Plus, with the added nuts, coconut, and white chocolate chips, each bite is bursting with even more flavor! So, preheat the oven to 350°F, prepare a 9×13-inch pan with non-stick spray, and get out the ingredients you need.

  1. First, prepare the lemon cake batter by following the directions on the box. (But don’t bake the cake.)
  2. Next, layer the bottom of the sprayed pan with the coconut and macadamia nuts. You can always leave the coconut or nuts (or both) out of the recipe if you prefer.
  3. Then, spread the cake batter that you just prepared over the layer of coconut and nuts.
  4. Meanwhile, in a large bowl, combine the cream cheese, butter, confectioners’ sugar, vanilla, and salt. Beat with a mixer until combined.
  5. Dollop the cream cheese mixture on top of the cake batter and create a marble swirl.
  6. Sprinkle the white chocolate chips on top and bake for 55-60 minutes. The cake is done when the center is set.
  7. Serve warm, and don’t forget about adding a scoop of vanilla ice cream on top!

How to Make a Marble Swirl

It’s pretty easy to get that fancy marble swirl in a cake. After you have the lemon cake batter in the pan and the cream cheese mixture prepared, it’s simple. Add dollops of the cream cheese mixture on top of the lemon cake batter. Use a butter knife or metal/wooden skewer to make loose vertical zig-zags from one end of the pan to the other.

Clean off the knife and make the zig-zag pattern in the opposite direction. You don’t need to over-swirl. A few swirls in each direction will be just enough to get the flavors mixed together.
