Lemon Berry Ritz Icebox Cake

This recipe may be printed out.

Today, we’re going to make a Lemon Berry Ritz Icebox Cake, which is a delicious combination of sweet berries, tart lemon zest, and crunchy Ritz crackers. This recipe is based on the famous icebox cakes that were popular in early 20th-century America when refrigerators were commonplace in most homes. Because of their understated beauty and the miraculous change that occurs when they are chilled in the fridge overnight, icebox cakes are much sought for. In the summer, when the heat from the oven isn’t exactly pleasant, or anytime you need a creative dessert that doesn’t need much effort, this is the perfect recipe for you.


A scoop of vanilla bean ice cream or a dollop of whipped cream would be the perfect complement to this delicious Lemon Berry Ritz Icebox Cake, but it also tastes great on its own. Pair it with a tart, citrus-infused salad for a welcome change of pace.
