    This recipe uses 3 lemons, thus the name "triple". Three lemons will yield enough juice and rind needed for this recipe.

      Thank you so much for sharing this wonderful recipe breezer, we really enjoyed it. It was quick and easy to make with terrific results. The cake was tender and full of lemon flavor. The glaze really enhances the flavor of the cake while the frosting is to die for. Made as written and wouldn't change a thing.

      LOVE!! A tender, moist yellow cake with just the right amount of lemon! Unfortunately I didn't have a 9-inch round cake pan deep enough to hold all the batter, so I baked in a 8"x8"x2" Pyrex dish for 30 minutes at 325F. My lemons were large, so I also garnished with zest. Tagged for Spring Photo Tag, due 05/25 (with extension).
