READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by oopsmakes3

This is from Bakefest 2003 little cookbook that I have. Haven't made it yet, but it looks sooo good.

This cake was delicious--good enough to eat without the frosting. The problem, however, was in the frosting ingredients--there is no lemon listed and yet the instructions tell you to add it. I guessed and put 3 Tbsp lemon juice plus the zest of 2 lemons and 1 teaspoon vanilla. Had a nice lemon flavor. I would definitely make this again.
