I wanted something not too sweet and so I made this. It really fit the bill and was delicious. Thanks Anke for the delightful recipe. I'll certainly make it again! Nancy
Wonderful moist cake. I substituted orange juice and zest for the lemon extract and made 2 loaf cakes instead of using the tube pan. I might try adding cranberries or something interesting in the future. Thanks for posting.
Nice moist and light cake. Didn't have any lemon extract so used grated rind of a lemon and orange, great citrus taste. This is also a good basic recipe that could be adapted to lots of different flavours.
