    Sharlene~W's Note:

    This is a lower-fat version of lemon cake I discovered in a recent issue of Cooking Light. The frosting works best when the cream cheese is cold--use it right from the refrigerator. Don't skip letting the frosting chill for an hour before you frost cake otherwise frosting will be too thin. Store finished cake in the refrigerator.

      I love this cake! I have the same recipe that I have made for a couple years. It is very lemony!

      I can vouch that this cake is to die for! I didn't actually make it, although I've had the recipe for years. My SIL made it this weekend for a picnic and I ate two pieces, when usually I avoid cakes. She made hers as a 4 layer cake so it had a bit more frosting, and it was SO moist and dense, yet not too sweet. I was going to post the recipe myself, Sharlene, but saw that you had beat me to it. It's definitely a keeper and one that is a huge hit, especially if you love lemon. Thanks for posting this recipe!
