      Holy cow is this delicious! I think the cake flour and creaming method really make this light and fluffy. I cut back the sugar 25% (I usually do, since we don't like things too sweet) and used Smart Balance. I added a piece of parchment under the long way of the loaf pan so it would be easy to remove. I thought the syrup looked like a lot, but it all got absorbed, and makes for a VERY nice lemon flavor. Scrumptious!!
