    This is my favorite cake, and it is an old family recipe. The citrus glaze makes this cake moist and delicious.

      This was a tasty cake. I liked the way the glaze sunk into the cake, however I think I'd add some lemon zest to give it more flavour.

      After looking at Annacia's photo, I was a little disappointed in the presentation of the cake. The cake itself was just wonderful, but when I added the glaze as per the instructions, instead of sitting on top like the photo, it sunk into the cake, which made the cake very moist and gave an appearance of not being done, which it was. Next time I will let the cake cook slightly, remove it from the pan, then add the glaze topping. I think that will work better for me.
