Super easy recipe! I'd read some of the other reviews and added some lemon juice to the recipe and it turned out fabulous. I also only baked it for an hour, and it was perfection! Thank you for sharing this great recipe.

First time to make it today. My husband and kids love it. Will be making this again. Thanks for sharing this recipe.

I used a regular loaf pan and as a result, it developed a serious crust. It also took longer to cook completely. Next time, and I will be making it again, I will use a bundt pan. I also switched up the extracts, using 1 1/2 teaspoons almond and just a half a teaspoon of vanilla. Great flavor

Disappointed. I don't know what happened, but mine came out like a brick and was dry and tasteless. I am not an experienced baker, so I presume that I made major mistakes along the way. I'll try again and see what happens. Cheers, Michael

Not 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!

Made it last night and used almond flavor and some maraschino cherries, then baked in 8' tube pan and it turned out perfect! I'll use this recipe again for sure!

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!

The recipe was very easy. We made it for Thanksgiving. Next to the turkey it was the star of the day. Highly recommended. Baked at 325 temp for about an hour.

Turned out great. Husband just wants me to add more lemon extract. I baked it in bundt pan, next time I think I will try a loaf pan. Overall a A+
