This is a great cake Marli. I have this recipe too, but mine is double quantity and I cook in a 8" square pan. I got it from the Woman's Day, prize recipe 30 or more years ago. Thanks for posting it Marli. Update: I just wanted to explain the photo Marli, I cut it in halves and spread lemon curd in between layers - gee it was good.
