Lemon Cake 9 x 13 is rated 3.5 out of 5 by 2.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Lots of cake I wanted a lemon cake recipe that made enough batter to make 2- 9" cake layers. Well, this is it. It makes a lot. As it turned out, I actually made 3- 8" cakes instead. My husband thought the cake was a little dry. A hint of lemon comes thru on the taste test. I also made the lemon cake filling from the Wilton site and lemon cream cheese icing. It was a little rich, but tasted good. I received many compliments.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from In directions it states add eggs and vanilla but in the batter ingredients there isn't vanilla listed. So I added about 1 1/2 teaspoon to batter. Cake took nearly 60 minutes probably could have gone closer to 65. Cake will look a dark color if using real butter. I tried with both butter and one with margarine. Not much difference in taste but I noticed a color difference. This makes a thick cake would make a much better layered cake really. Otherwise taste was good.
