    This is very moist and has a nice delicate flavor, but for me not enough lemon, I could barely taste it when eating the cake without the glaze. If it was called Cream Cake with lemon glaze it would be perfect! I made the recipe as shown except for cutting it in half for one loaf, and adding a TBL of fresh lemon juice in place of some of the milk. Maybe a little lemon extract give it a boost. I used 1/3 c sugar and lemon juice for the glaze and poked some holes. The moistness is almost too moist for me (I don't like when baked goods start heading towards gummy) I would reduce the fat, as another reviewer, did to a 1/3 cup. My loaf was very brown on the bottom and sides, and cooked, at 50 minutes. Overall I really liked this and would make it again with a few adjustments to suit our tastes. Thank you Wildflour for sharing another lovely recipe. Made for ZWT5 by one of the Cooks With Dirty Faces.
