    A simple but good lemony cake. This cake uses cake flour which isn't the same thing as all-purpose flour. Source: Bon Appetit Oct 1984.

      This is a wonderful cake! I made as stated on a processor but increased the baking powder by 1/2 teaspoon, and lined the bottom of the loaf pan with parchment paper. This cake will be enjoyed by my family, and I definatley will make again soon, thanks Ellie!...Kitten:)
