This is one of the best cakes I have ever eaten!! I made it in two 9" cake pans, and baked them for 22 minutes .. Thank you for a wonderful recipe!!

Hello riffraff; Made your cake yesterday afternoon. Used the recipe as you have it printed. The only thing I did differently was to bake it in 2 - 9 inch pans and baked for 30 minutes. It turned out just beautiful, a light lemony color. I then cooled the cakes for about 10 minutes, then removed from pans onto a wire rack for about 10 more minutes. Then placed one layer on a plate, spread the lemon sauce over, then placed the second layer and spread over the top and let it run down the sides. The cake turned out with a nice lemony taste, light and a fantastic color. The taste was phenomenol. I thoroughly enjoyed having the first piece just as is, now I will have the next piece with ice cream. Thank you for posting this marvellous recipe, and yes, it was easy to make. Unfortunately the rating does not go beyond 5. "Uncle Bill"

I didn't care for this recipe. The cake had a rather bland flavor with no "tart" lemony over or undertones. I followed the recipe exactly and used two 8" cake pans with a total bake time of 25 minutes. It looked great and baked well otherwise. After letting it sit a half day there was an improvement in it. Will try it again!

Thanks so much for sharing riffraff. My DH and I fall in love with this easy to make cake that tastes just like lemon sponge cake. We topped the cake with a tart lemon buttercream frosting. Yummy...
