Granny's Recipe

"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!"

This cake smells sooooo good! My son could not stop licking the spoon while the cake was in the oven. That was more than enough to let me know it will be great! But I had to share how great it looks! This was an excellent recipe! Thankx

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.

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
