Wonderful cake that wasn't too lemony! Great glaze too. I served it with a pretty lemon/orange/lime sherbet and it went perfectly. Thanks for the recipe! Read More

This recipe is wonderful! I added a glaze made with 3 cups confectioner's sugar 2 tbsp lemon juice 1 tsp milk 2 tbsp butter and 1 cup coconut - this added a bit of texture to the cake. It also covers up the holes! Loved it! Read More

A very moist, very lemony cake. I also make an additional glaze of lemon juice and powdered sugar to go over it after it is cooled...YUM! Read More

This cake was good but way way way to sweet (and I like sweet). Could not taste the lemon and I substituted lemon juice for the water in my glaze. I also only had a white cake so made it with that. Read More

I made this with butter cake just like the box said W/ (real Butter). Took it to our neighborhood Bingo everyone wanted the recipe. I saved a little of the icing and make it thicker to drizzle over the top after it cooled it looked wonderful and tasted great! Read More
