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
Wonderful cake! Thanks for sharing.
Excellent! I omitted the salt.I was going to add some lemon extract but I didn't after all.It's really not needed.It's perfect with the lemon rind and the juice in the syrup.Delicious!!
My family LOVES this cake. The only changes I make is to add a couple t lemon extract, and to increase the glaze to 3/4 c lemon juice and 4 cups powdered sugar. Gives it a little more lemon kick. Even my non lemon eating son loves this cake. I made the mistake of mentioning that I was craving this while we were camping this summer, and all 8 of us were desperate for it for the rest of the week. Guess what we made right away when we got home? We are giving this to everyone on our Christmas list this year.
Let them eat CAKE!!! Actually, I had two pieces....and it is even better the next day.
Fantastic! I made it extra lemony with a ton of lemon rind,used slightly less sugar, butter in place of shortening and made a lemon syrup to soak the cake in. Delicious!! Will definitely be a repeat in our house.
I made no changes, but something went wrong.Comming out of the oven cake was high and beautiful.until I put the lemon,sugar mix over cake.It fell into a flat soggy mess.Does anyone have a answer for me?
A very luscious and tender cake. I made it in a long, skinny, 'European ' loaf pan and it came out great. Just beautiful. Sadly, the only sugar I had on hand was adulterated with vanilla sugar, so that added a, frankly, somewhat unwelcome flavor to the cake, but it was still very yummy. Will definitely make again!
I enjoyed the lemon flavor of this cake. Very interesting to use cream cheese instead of butter.
