I just took this cake out of the oven and it was perfect!! Moist on the inside with just an ever so slight crust on the outside! I did have to make a couple of substitutes: cake flour instead of...

Instead of sundrop soda I used orange cream soda and real orange juice. This recipe is so moist and firm. My friends and coworkers love when I make it.

This is a simple delicious recipe. Everyone who tasted it loved it. I didn't change one thing.....I am however, going to try this same recipe with an orange soda and orange extract.

Tasted good, but, had no lemon taste. I will not make this again.

Fantastic! Turned out great the two times I've made it.
