    Bonnie G #2's Note:

    A nice light cake to serve with all the fresh strawberries and raspberries that come with Spring Gardens. I've certainly guessed at serving size but it turns out a 10" cake

      Photo may be seen here (in Savor):
      I don't think that I have ever made a cake with yeast but it works great. The texture can best be described as a firm angel food. The lemon taste in the cake is very mild and with the ask for sugar (I used Splenda) it's not at all sweet. I added another 14 cup of Splenda to suite our taste. The glaze on the other hand packs a lemon punch when sampled but when it's absorbed by the cake it's wonderful. Mine set to make a crisp thin coating that crunched when sliced. I want to say that the recipe would work perfectly fine without the extra sweetening that I added for personal taste only. It's also fun to watch your cake rising! :D
