Very nice! I made this yesterday afternoon and it is delicious. I had some thick cream left over, so I served it with a dollop and a cup of good coffee. I actually halved all the cake ingredients and only made one, but used the full syrup ingredients (effectively doubling the syrup) and the cake soaked it all up like a sailor on shore leave!

Delicious! I happen to love lemon cake, and this sort of reminds me of the kind that my friend makes! I made no alterations to this recipe, and I do not think it needs any. At least thats from my point of view. Thanks for the recipe!!

ABSOLUTELY DELIGHTFUL CAKE, but then I do love lemons! I made one little addition to the recipe in that I used a tablespoon of minced lemon zest in the topping, & while the glaze soaked into the loaves very nicely, as it did so it left behind little flecks of wonderful lemon flavor! Definitely a keeper of a recipe! Many thanks for posting it! [Made & reviewed in the special event, All Aboard the L-O-V-E Train!]

Love, love, love this cake. Not sure if it is comparable to Starbucks ( we don't have one here- darn it! ) but I love the dense texture. Made it 2 times and both times made one cake with double the syrup-thanx to JustJim for this suggestion- and it soaked it all up!! YUM YUM YUM!!

Nice recipe, but a bit too heavy for my taste. Less eggs (& sugar) and more leavening might improve it.
