Oh my goodness! This cake was absolutely delicious. I followed the recipe exactly as it is and I was very impressed. The cake was moist and so lemony. I made a simple lemon/powdered sugar glaze but I firmly believe this cake would have been just fine without it! Served it at my mother's birthday party and the guests were in love! Will DEFINITELY be making this again. Thanks!

This is a delicious, moist cake. We'll be having it for our Easter meal this year (which also happens to be my birthday). Can't wait to have it again!

Simple, good and easy to make lemon cake if you're not looking to bust out all the measuring tools and mixer. I used Duncan Hines Lemon Cake Mix and Jello Instant Lemon Pudding. I'm not a fan of extracts so I left it out but still continued following the recipe. I used a bundt pan for baking but thought that the cake looked better without flipping it as the top of the cake showed off that beautiful bright lemon color. I made a simple icing, generously drizzled over the top and then added more fresh lemon zest on top of the icing. The cake was moist and still very lemony even without the extract. I've added a picture so you can see how it looks outside he bundt pan, but without flipping it. Personally I think it looks way better that way. This will be my go to quick lemon cake recipe.

I followed the directions, baked in two loaf pans, instead of a bundt pan, and it was a total disaster. When I took it out of the oven to cool it looked great, I put the pans on a cooling rack for ten minutes, went back to take them out of the pans to cool completely and both of the cakes had fallen to about two inches thick. The cake itself had a very strange texture and flavor. I will never attempt to make this cake again, waste of time and ingredients. <br/><br/>I',m 51 years old, and have made quite a few cakes over the years, I can't figure out what went wrong on this cake.<br/><br/><br/>Brian

Not as good as I expected...looked and tasted like a doctored cake mix. With all the added lemon, very disappointed.
