Very good and lemony!
I have made this 4 times now. The first 2 were gone in a day without sharing, the 3rd one I shared a little, the 4th one is cooling on the counter and I am dying to get into it! I do not use the lemon zest....I did in the first one and didn't like the texture and didn't notice a difference in flavor. I have used real lemon juice and the plastic lemon juice and can't tell a big difference either way. My sister didn't think it was very "lemony" and she had the real lemon w/ lemon zest. I guess it isn't overwhelming lemon flavor, but sure is the buttery, dense, yummy cake I was looking for! I microwave the glaze and stir so it dissolves and add it the last 5-10 mns of baking. I used fresh blueberries and didn't do anything special to them and never had any problem with them ending up on the bottom. Thanks for sharing.
Delicious! The lemon glaze really enhances the lemon flavor. This is easy too!
