    DangerousWithKnives's Note:

    This recipe is from my future mother in law, and it is just amazing. Soooo easy that it now makes a regular weekday appearance. I recommend following the recipe to the letter, but have made an amendment to the glaze because I think it's too gritty if you don't heat the sugar and lemon juice before spreading it over the cake. Mmm...think I'll go make one of these now!

      Wonderful! Light, lemony, easy to make... We loved it. The sugar for the lemon syrup isn't mentioned in the ingredients list, so I wasn't sure whether to hold back 3 tbsp or to measure out an extra dose of sugar - in the end, I measured out more, and it worked fine. Note that the juice of the lemon is also required, and not just the zest listed in the ingredients. Next time, I will use two lemons, because we're fond of them. This is an excellent cake.
