    breezermom's Note:

    This is a very thin cake that is ready in no time at all. Originally published in a cookbook titled "Specialties of Indianapolis, Volume 2"...wonder why it is called Lemon Texas Cake instead of Lemon Indiana Cake? Regardless, it is a good lemon cake.

      Fabulous! This cake has the most velvety pleasing texture out of any cake I've ever made. I baked it in a large jellyroll pan as directed so it's ends up being a huge thin sheet cake. I wouldn't say it was super lemony but was light and sweet. The Icing was very sweet but wasn't so bad spread so thin across the large surface. I think blueberries would be the perfect addition to this. It would be lovely for a baby shower. Made for 1-2-3 hit wonders.

      Oh so moist! We halved the recipe and baked it in a 7x11 pan. The cake is so moist and nicely flavored but the icing was just a bit too sweet for our tastes. We still gave it 5 stars though, because the cake is fantastic. Next time we will simply dust it with a little powdered sugar and lemon peel. Thanks for posting such a wonderful treat. :)

      Divine and delicious !! So easy to do as well. I can see this becoming a staple as it is so quick to whip up and I always have lemons from my trees waiting to be used !!
