    Texture is more like a brownie, dense and moist. You do want to use fresh lemon rind and freshly squeezed lemons. Has a nice tart lemon flavor that really comes through. Can whip this up in no time. A keeper, thanks for posting!

    Wasn't a fan of this. The flavor was great, very lemony and not very sweet, but it was too dense. Felt like we had eaten rocks afterwards. I tried to chill it a bit, and that made it even worse. Good thing this recipe doesn't make much, we tossed the rest.

    I too found this to be a dense cake and it didn't rise at all either. And I followed the recipe properly. But it was definitely a very moist and flavorful cake..nice and lemony. I had cut these into bars and they were good especially when they were warm. Thanks for sharing your recipe KitchenManiac.
