    The best lemon cake I've ever had! From Woman's Day. You can use lime zest and juice in place of lemon for a nice change of pace. Everyone will want this recipe!

      This is probably the best cake we've ever had. Every time I'm supposed to bring a dessert, this is the one requested. Well worth the effort.

      We made this recipe at a BBQ for a group of friends. . We made it without the glaze(we've tried the glaze, but like it much better without the extra sweetness) sliced it. and lightly browned each slice on the grill. We then covered each serving with thawed frozen strawberries and whipped cream. Everyone raved. The texture is a little course, but that is a positive part of the desert's appeal. Will repeat again with other fruit combinations. Thank you for posting.

      I was disappointed by the texture of this cake. It was rather gritty. Taste was not bad but it is just an average cake in my opinion
