Lemony Lemon Cake

READY IN: 50mins
Recipe by Ms Emma

This cake is scrumptious. It has a very strong lemony flavor and it is very simple to make. I would strongly suggest this recipe to anyone who enjoys a light fruity dessert.

Thanks, Ms Emma, for posting this delicious recipe. I make a similar cake, using either yellow cake mix or lemon cake mix. Also, I use apricot nectar in place of the water. My recipe calls for 4 eggs,(beat the whites separately and fold in). I bake mine in a tube pan for 45 minutes, and use 1 1/2 cups powdered sugar and juice/zest of 1 lemon for the glaze.
