The sweltering heat may not be celebrated but it does bring with it certain treats that are universally loved, be it popsicles, ice-cream, mangoes, or iced coolers. However, quintessential light-flavoured summer desserts feature lemon. So we rounded up the top seven lemon desserts and where to try them in Delhi this sunny season.

The ex-journalist now-baker Mandakini Gupta picked a befitting name for her home bakery – Smitten. With not just Delhi but the country swooning over her desserts (her patrons include Arpita Khan, Nimrat Kaur, Mira & Shahid Kapoor amongst others), this Lemon Poppy Seed cake with edible flowers makes for a refreshing indulgence.

Bani Nanda started out as a home baker and has recently expanded to a café space. Her French entremets are one of a kind and started a wave of similar desserts across the city. Her Lemon Meringue Entremet is a lemon tart turned into a cake, made of lemon pound cake lemon curd, vanilla cream, meringue, and sablé. Just divine.

The 57-year-old bakery evokes deep nostalgia for those who’ve grown up eating its offerings. And for those who haven’t, let’s just say it’s quick-fix comfort food that will hit the right spot every time you dig into something here. Their lemon tarts have been popular for years, and there’s no reason why that popularity should wane this summer.

L’opera

This home bakery by Sana Nair focuses on classics, and almost always gets it right. When seeking some decadence, her mini Lemon Meringues fit the bill perfectly.
