Recipe by Vseward Chef-V

A good friend of mine makes this cake and I just had to have the recipe. This is the best melt in your mouth lemon cake you've ever tasted. It's rich and very moist.

My lemon-loving DH really enjoyed this cake, in place of the lemon extract I added in 2 tablespoon fresh lemon juice, please don't omit the frosting it really adds so much more flavor to the cake, thanks for sharing hon!...Kitten:)
