If you prefer vanilla to lemon you could substitute the lemon zest in the filling with 1 tbsp of vanilla paste. That way you have more a vanilla flavour cake instead of lemon.

This recipe is from my German Grandma which is usually made with "Quark" as this is not so easy to find in the local shops I adapted it slightly and used greek yogurt & cream cheese which also works well.
