    I didn't make the cake, but I used this Lemon Syrup to brush on top of recipe #231356, and it was a 5 star combination! The syrup really added a lemmony zip, and it was so simple!

    This is way too much work for the product you get. I thought the cake was a bit too dense. However, I used bread flour, so maybe this messed it up. I think a glaze would be much better rather than the sauce which only soaked through the very middle of the cake -- I poured it over each piece after I sliced it. I will not make this again -- sorry.

    This is completely DELICIOUS- tangy and sweet and the syrup makes it so moist. I served the cake with syrup and a bit of decorative rind with a dop of natural yoghurt on the side- added extra tang (and fewer calories than cream!)

    Great pound cake! I made a mistake and added 1/4 cup of lemon juice to the cake instead of the glaze, but it was very good anyway. Thanks, Carole
