Recipe by Diamondlil
A very moist cake with a lot of lemon flavor. Cake is similar to pound cake. A great cake to serve to company.

Absolutely adore this recipe. The only changes I make is that I fold fresh or frozen blueberries into the batter just before spooning it into the pan. I usually make it into two loaves and share one of them with a friend. Also have made it with cranberries, equally great! Thank you so much for sharing this recipe!!
