Your right Karen, this is for lemon lovers. And it is goooood. I've frozen some of it (without the topping) for expected guests later this month. I know they will enjoy it too.
This cake has an excellent flavor and is so moist it melts in your mouth. I must say though that the cool whip really doesn't add anything exciting to the cake. Next time I make it I think I will try a buttercream or cream cheese frosting flavored with lemon and forego the cool whip.
This is a great recipe. It needs no frosting - cool whip or other type.
