Warm Winter Lemon Cake

"This is from the Winter 2006 Kraft Food and Family Magazine. Serve warm for a saucey and gooey filling, but if the cake gets cold the filling will become thick and custard-like."

    Now, this was delicious. I did take advise from another review and added some lemon extract. It was the best......I will be trying other flavors as well. Maybe one with Cheesecake jello and peaches....

    This cake is delicious. I put the dish on a cookie sheet but it still made a mess of my oven. I would recommend that you put tin foil underneath to contain the mess.

    This was really good -- was really not sure how it was going to turn out when I was putting it together, but was pleasantly surprised. Think that next time I might take a suggestion from some of the other reviews and adding a little extra lemon juice, as the filling did lack the flavor I expected in a couple of bites.

    I love this recipe & originally found it in the Kraft magazine, too. For more lemon, I add 1/2 - 1 t lemon extract. Delicious warm dessert. Thanks for putting it here so I always know where to find it!
