Lemon Cake with Cheesecake Tunnel – We'd follow a cheesecake tunnel anywhere! This one especially—because it leads through a super-moist lemon cake topped with lemony drizzle. Not only is this dessert treat fun, it’s also perfect for serving this spring.
The original tunnel-of-fudge cake won second place in the 1966 Pillsbury Bake-Off Contest for the late Ella Rita Helfrich of Houston. That version used a fudge icing mix to create a gooey chocolate center. But Pillsbury discontinued the icing mix, and the resulting clamor of home bakers led Pillsbury to release a recipe for making tunnel-of-fudge cake from scratch. (Photo: Jim Wilson/The New York Times)
