    Crunchycookie23's Note:

    This is a simple lemon torte that uses lots of fresh lemon juice in both the cake and the accompanying glaze. This cake is so simple that you really need to use fresh lemon juice, as opposed to bottled juice, to get the best result. The very moist cake has a mellow lemon flavor throughout and would be good, if a bit plain, on its own. A small amount of zesty, lemony glaze is poured over the cake while it is still warm and it is this finishing touch that makes the cake bright and memorable.
