Followed your recipe right on down, & I'm another one who wouldn't change a thing! Normally I'm happy to increase the amount of lemon zest, but since the 2 lemons I used for this were large ones, that was good enough for me! Wonderfully flavorful cake that was gone rather quickly! Thanks for giving us the opportunity of keeping a copy of the recipe! [Made & reviewed in 1-2-3 Hits recipe tag]
