Yummy and moist

Top Review by MissLinguist

I'm pleasantly surprised by this cake, which is nice and moist almost like a sour cream cake or pound cake. The lemon is a nice touch, which makes the flavor just a bit light, but not really lemon-y. I think I will cut the sugar a little next time. I used butter instead of oil, and I baked it in a 9x5.5 inch loaf pan. Mine took 60 min. at 350. Thanks!
