"Very nice flavor and texture! I used vanilla and almond extracts and margerine in place of butter. (Word of advice make sure you place the cake pan on at least the middle rack and have ample room. I placed mine in the smaller oven of my double oven and it rose and touched the heating element.) I baked it in a loaf pan. Hubby enjoyed this cake also!"- mogriff1

mgold 1 week agoEasy, delicious, made it with lemon-lime glaze. Awesome!
BreeHoldeman 4 months agoNot as lemony as I had hoped, but still a great tasting cake! I used a couple of dashes of extra sugar and at least a tablespoon of lemon juice but next time I'll be sure to add plenty more of both. I could probably make it taste lemony with a sweet lemon glaze over it. Definitely worth another try though just based on the texture!
