Lemon Cream King Cake

This recipe is from Rhodes (use their frozen dough, it makes the King Cake a MUCH easier project!)

Find a sweet surprise inside this Mardi Gras king’s cake when you taste its delicious lemon & cream-cheese filling!


12 Rhodes™ Dinner Rolls or 8 Rhodes Texas™ Rolls, or l Loaf Rhodes™ White Bread dough, thawed to room temperature
8 oz Neufchatel or cream cheese, softened
1 cup powdered sugar
1 teaspoon lemon extract
zest from one lemon
1 egg, beaten
white icing
purple, green and gold sugar sprinkles


Spray counter lightly with non-stick cooking spray. Roll combined rolls or loaf into a 10x18-inch rectangle. Cover with plastic wrap and let rest.

In a bowl, combine the cheese and powdered sugar. Add the lemon extract and zest and mix well.

Remove wrap from dough and spread filling over all but 1/2-inch along all edges. Brush one long edge with egg. Roll up lengthwise starting with the long edge that has not been brushed with egg. Pinch seam to seal. Form into a ring and pinch ends together to seal.

Place on large sprayed baking sheet and cover with sprayed plastic wrap. Let rise 45-60 minutes. Remove wrap and bake at 350°F 30-35 minutes. Cover with foil last 15 minutes, if necessary, to prevent over-browning.

Cool completely and then ice with white icing. Decorate with sugar sprinkles as desired.

I made a King Cake last year that turned out disastrously! Although the cake (which is really more of a yeast bread recipe) turned out fine, it is then glazed and sugared with the colored sugars to represent something to do with Mardi Gras--I forget now what they are.

The powdered sugar bag was on a shelf in the pantry which had previously housed a bottle of laundry detergent. I had no idea that somehow some detergent dripped and been absorbed into the shelf, which somehow leached into the powdered sugar bag..

The thing tasted like it was tinged with soap-- AWFUL!! I was so excited to present it after dinner on Fat Tuesday--the thing took a while to make after all--and after everyone took a bite they all had this strange look on their faces. Since we'd never tasted King Cake before they all thought maybe it was supposed to taste like that... !! (I didn't make them eat anymore).

It took a few weeks to figure out what happened!!

:purplelol: I will give this recipe another go, though, soap-free this time!

Most folks in this part of Louisiana spend the day on the parade route, so we either bar-be-que or bring sandwich stuff. 'Course we cook jambalaya, gumbo, and etouffee all of the time. And not too many of us cook our own King Cake - all of the grocery stores, Wal-Marts and bakeries sell them! We have a choice of about 10 different fillings and several sizes.

And yes, we will be making mixed drinks:drinking53:...lots and lots of mixed drinks! LOL
