This cake has a great "lemony" flavor and is quick to make. I split the cake into 3 layers and filled it with lemon curd, then frosted it with lemon cream cheese icing made from an 8 oz. package of cream cheese, 1/4 c. lemon juice, 1 tsp. grated lemon peel and powdered sugar. I also added 1 tsp.grated lemon peel to the cake batter before baking.

This cake is fantastic! It's very easy, so new bakers shouldn't have a problem impressing family, or friends. And the taste is great. It is very moist. Also, a little tip, instead of flouring the pan, sugar it, with granulated sugar. It works just as well, & doesn't leave a white residue on the cake. I garnished with fresh lemon whipped cream, & YUM!

I fell in love with a lemon cake at a local restaurant and went in search of the recipe. This recipe is even better! I bake it in 2 round cake pans and pour the glaze on while they are still in the pan. I also poke tiny holes in the cake as mentioned earlier. Then I frost it with cream cheese frosting. SO GOOD! It is now my most requested dessert!
