I'm making this cake as I'm writing. So I can't give a review quite yet. But I'd just like to say that I would love to read a review that is actually based on the original recipe. Not changed, added to, taken away or totally redone. It is one of my pet peeves. Please if you don't make the recipe like the original, don't post a review on it.

My Husband and I LOVED this recipe !!! It was so easy to make and turned out beautifully. I used lemon cake mix instead of white for an even lemonier flavor. It is delicious ! Thank you for such a great recipe !!

This is delicious! I used about 2/3 of the can of lemon pie filling in the cake.My only complaint is that the lemon sunk to the bottom. Next time I will try to swirl it in and see how that comes out. I didn't have canned frosting so I took the remaining 1/3 can of filling, mixed it with about 4 oz. of softened cream cheese and 3 Tbsp. of powdered sugar, and folded in 12 oz. cool whip. This made for a yummy topping. Thanks for the recipe. I'll be making it again.
