This was a DELICIOUS! cake. I shared it with friends at the lake and everyone loved it. I made a glaze to put over the top. The juice of 2 fresh small lemons, 2 caps full of lemon extract, 2 cups confectioner sugar, 1/3c regular sugar and mixed together than drizzled over top of cake. This will be a keeper! Thanks for sharing the recipe :)

I used butter and took it out of the oven after smelling and checking it with a toothpick, about one hour to be exact. An hour and a half would have been no bueno. Perfect recipe, just keep an eye on the baking time.

WOW! My entire family is in agreement that this was the best cake they've ever tasted. It was perfect! Didn't have lemon extract so i used some rind and 1/4 cup of juice. I also made a glaze out of 1/4 cup lemon juice, 4 tbsp melted butter and 2 cups confectioners sugar. Thanks so much for posting! I'm looking forward to making this often
