    Another upside-down cake recipe passed on to me by a friend! This one I haven't yet made, but from the looks of the recipe, it should taste wonderful!

      Hi Mike,
      for Mother-day I got "your" cake from my children! It was delicious and fresh!
      This was a real challange for them preparing this alone (english is not our motherlanguage) and with a new technique! Your explanations were clear and the cake came out really good!
      Thanks a lot for your always wonderful recipes.

      this cake has extreme flavor, my DH who is a lemon-lover absolutely loved this, I did make a few minor changes, I omitted the vanilla and used 1 teaspoon almond extract, increased the sugar in the cake slightly, this is a cake I will make again, thanks for sharing Syd!
