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.

We all liked the cake - especially the icing! - but I think next time I'll try it with a lemon cake mix. I used yellow, and it wasn't quite lemony enough for our tastes. Thanks!

Made this last weekend for the family, and it was a big hit (lemon recipes usually are)! I used a lemon cake mix instead of a yellow cake mix. I had a few Meyer lemons to be used up, so that's what I used for the glaze, along with a shot of limoncello that has been lurking in the fridge for some time. Thanks for posting!
