Made this into cupcakes for my son's 6th birthday, as he specifically requested lemon-lime cake. Baked at 350 degrees for 18 minutes. Used half cake flour and half whole wheat flour, as well as regular eggs. Came out great! Good for a party on a balmy summer day.

bless your heart for posting!!! i was just about to do that... anyway, love this cake - layers don't rise very much, but it doesn't matter... I cheated and used 3 eggs rather than the "egg substitute" and used a lemon-lime curd for the filling... very tangy and great after a spicy meal!
