IdidaMade 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!1m ago
joyings01This 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!10m ago

Valerie411Such 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.1y ago
