Easy to make. Very lemony. I like these because I always have the ingredients on hand.

Super simple. The only thing I changed was grease and SUGAR the pan, instead of grease and flour the pan. Lovely little sparkley cake!
YUUUMY Delicious.. I listened to every one and only put in 1 CUP of sugar and the cake was plenty sweet enough. I also used a Â½ teaspoon of lemon extract in the cake mix. I will make this often it is simple and like MaeEast says most of the time these ingredients are on hand. This is a good dessert because you donâ€™t have to wait for it to cool.. Thank you
I made these for a wedding shower this weekend and got lots of compliments! They had a nice lemon flavor and were nice and moist! I made a few slight changes. I made a double batch and baked it in a 9x13, but I think it was actually too much batter (maybe 1 1/2 batch would be better). I also added lemon zest to the batter, which was a really nice touch. Finally, I cut down the sugar (my habit) to 2 cups (1 per batch). I look forward to making these again!
