After making this cake the first time it has been the cake request in the future. Absolutely delicious. Tart cake with sweet strawberry topping. Highly recommend others trying it.
Couldn't disagree more with the other review. I made this cake for years for parties and always received rave reviews. I just moved home after living overseas for 3 years without a kitchen and this is the recipe I immediately went back to for my 4th of July party planning. This cake is delicious, light and has bright fresh flavors- perfect for summer.
Warning: This recipe will use all your mixing bowls and saucepans in the kitchen. The cake is only slightly lemony and the strawberry filling is a weird consistency. Assembly is a nightmare - strawberry topping slides off the top and the whipped cream drops off the sides. A lot of work for just OK-tasting cake.
