Hi Domestic Goddess, made your lemon cake this weekend, it was simply too yummy, very moist and very lemony, I took Theresa's advice, and added lemon rind (lot's of it), probably the rind of one half of a lemon, then I squeezed about 1 Tbsp fresh lemon juice into the was delicious, I took it over to a get-together this weekend, and I believe that there was nothing left, everyone just loved it, the frosting was great also. Thanks so much Goddess for posting such a wonderful cake recipe, I will be making this again....KC :-)

I took Christy's advice and used the Luscious Lemon Frosting (#54666) instead. What a great combination! The cake was so moist and delicious, and the frosting was just the perfect touch. I, too, added some fresh lemon zest and juice to the cake. If you're a lemon lover, this recipe will not disappoint. I will be making this one again and again.
