joyings01 3m agoThis 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!

Valerie411 9m agoSuch 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.

Kimbero911 1y agoSuper 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.
