Made this today twice! I love simple ingredients and simple recipes. I added lemon zest from 1 lemon & juice from two lemons. Only used 1 1/2 cup of sugar and did add baking powder & baking soda. I also up the vanilla to 1 tablespoon. Cut the butter to 1 1/2 sticks! This is delicious! Thank you Iparish for sharing!
This recipe was very easy to follow. After reading the reviews, I made a few changes. I used self-rising flour, added an extra 1/2c of sugar, and 1-1/2tsp of vanilla & 1/2tsp of lemon. The edges were thick and delicious and the cake was nice and moist. My family & I loved this cake! I'll definitely be making it again!
Such a great recipe! I used 2 T of lemon juice in place of the lemon extract and topped it with a lemon glaze (1/4 c of sugar melted into the juice of one lemon) and it tastes great!! Next time I'll try less time in the oven, I had some trouble getting the cake out of the pan.
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.
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.
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!
