Can't believe I haven't reviewed this cake yet, I've made it at least 3 times! Delicious! Like a couple of others, I slightly lowered the sugar content. I also double the glaze, I just can't get enough of it! So delish!

This cake has a great taste of lemon. It's perfect with the lemon zest and the lemon juice on top. It gives enough lemon flavor. The cake is moist. I used light cream cheese. I used only 1 cup of sugar in the cake but maybe 1/2 cup would be ok. Next time I'll poke the cake and pour the syrup while the cake is still hot so the syrup can go down. Thanks jean :) Made for Cookbook tag game
