After a 10-year hiatus — and thanks to a hilarious social media campaign started by a local Reddit user — Portillo’s lemon cake made a major comeback last summer. Now, the famous fast-casual restaurant is bringing it back every summer, which means it hit the menu this week. The beloved dessert, available through Sept. 10, is made of two decadently sweet and fluffy yellow cake layers with lemon frosting and is baked in-store daily. (BTW, if you don’t live close enough to try the cake in-store, you can even have it shipped nationwide). Consider our quest for the perfect beach bod on hold now. Portillos.com
