I have made this cake lots of times and is so delicious. I made it once with orange in place of lemon, but the lemon is much better and has a stronger flavour. Thx for a yummy recipe that is really easy to make.

Very successful recipe. Easy to make and tasty. I love the fact that it uses olive oil instead of butter/marg. etc. I just wish that recipes would be more specific about pan sizes. A loaf tin can be more than one size. But the recipe is great.
