Very moist cake with a light lemon flavor. I made it in a 13X9 pan & baked it about 35 mins. It is so tasty, it didn't even need frosting! A keeper.

this has got to be the best cake recipe I have tried anywhere. It was super moist and came out beautiful and cut like a dream. I couldnt believe how great tasting it was. Usually I find pound ...

This was absolutely delicious! I used it for strawberry shortcake, and when we ran out of strawberries, I put an icing of just whipped topping! DEElicious! Great easy recipe!!

This is a very moist cake. I took it to a church dinner and everyone loved it.
