    SweetJ's Note:

    If you haven't heard of or made "wacky cake" before, don't let the strange combo of ingredients scare you away. Trust me, it will be one of the most moist and delicious cakes you'll ever have! Unlike traditional wacky cake, this recipe makes a wonderful and refreshing lemon cake rather than a chocolate cake. Personally, I think it's the perfect summer dessert!

      I made cupcakes with this recipe using the zest of one whole lemon and lemon extract instead of almond. It makes 12 nicely rounded cupcakes bake at 350 for only 25 min.Nice and moist and lemon-y....picture added above.

      This cake was not a big hit in my house. The cake was a bit heavy not the kind of cake we prefer to eat. The frosting was ok but nothing special. It was fun mixing the batter and watching the chemistry of the ingredients as they were mixed. Made for PAC, Spring 2009

      I tried this with lime juice (have a ton of limes from my trees) and it wasn't 'limey' enough. I add more lime next time plus some zest. Texture was good, easy recipe. I'll retry it.
