Nice citrus flavor. I've made this a few times now. Today because I didn't need to make anything fancy instead of the 2 layers, I poured the entire batch into a 9x11 pan and baked it at the same temp/same time. Probably could've gone a few minutes less but it wasn't dry. Pretty dense cake though, not light and fluffy. Icing is great. Would make again.
I'm wondering if the cream cheese is missing in this recipe. At the top of the recipe it states that they combine butter and cream cheese in the cake itself, but there is no cream cheese in the ingredient list except for the icing.
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.
This is fabulous-moist and refreshing. So easy to make. Everyone loved it when I served it for a birthday celebration.
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 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 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.
This cake is refreshing! A hit every time I make it.
A perfect cake!
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.
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!
