Lemon-Lime Layer Cake

    This is one of my favorite spring/summer cakes. So moist & delicious! No one ever believes me when I tell them that it's light. I always add extra lemon & lime rind to the icing--it is just beautiful with the bright flecks of yellow and green! Definitely chill the icing a little longer than you usually might so that it firms up well enough.

    It came out wonderful! The cake did take longer to cook than the suggested time of 60 minutes. I had to keep it in for at least another 20 minutes. The frosting wasn't the easiest to work with, but it complimented the cake very well. Tasted like it came from the bakery!

    Absolutely Wonderful! I used a cream cheese/whipped cream icing with some lemon rind and juice and this was a huge hit. This recipe is a keeper.

    I made this cake for Mother's Day and it was a huge hit with the entire family. So refreshing. A lovely spring or summer cake. I only have one little quibble with this recipe. I think it would be almost impossible to cut the cake into the recommended serving size of 1/16th. I cut it into 12 slices and they were already pretty skinny. With a serving size of 1/12th, it worked out to 428 calories per slice instead of 319.

    My six year old requests this cake every time we have a party. Everyone else raves about as well.

    I chose this for my birthday and had my husband make it (while I hovered). He has naver baked anything in his life. It was wonderful! This is going to be my birthday cake from now on. My husband was so proud of himself!

    I made this for a retirement party, of which the guest of honor loved citrus flavor! The cake was a total success. Every morsel was eaten. I followed the recipe completely. People could not believe it was a light cake. They loved the light and refreshing taste of the cake and so did I.

    I've made this cake three times: the first was as written, the second and third times I used meyer lemons (orangy-lemon flavor). Though I have really liked the flavor each time, this is the densest cake I've ever made in my life--every time! I'm an avid baker, and I didn't mess this up the same way three times, for sure. It's not dense like a brownie or a flourless cake. It's just very, very firm. I'll search for a different light cake recipe in the future.
