Rated 4 out of 5 by CETM from Great for stacking A friend asked me to bake her wedding cake as a favor and wanted a lemon cake. This one proved perfect for stacking. It has a great crumb too. Make sure it does not get too cold as the density is too much when it is cold. Also, the lemon taste is faint. I would suggest adding more lemon juice (maybe a tablespoon). Since I had already baked it, I added a layer of lemon curd under the icing and that really pulled the lemon flavor out of the cake nicely!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Kayquinn30 from I made this for a very special "date night" dessert. It turned out very good but had a semi grainy texture. I don't really like lemon desserts but it was good. I was a little nervous about making it in the small square pan but it worked out great. The icing recipe is off and most people can tell that just by reading it. So my suggestion is don't even make it just look up the lemon icing recipe in the icing section. I would also suggest having it with a cup of coffee...dare I say it...in the morning :) Turned out great

Rated 5 out of 5 by darbl from Always make as 9x13 instead of 10x10; works fine. Delicious and moist lemon cake; nice dense texture. Cake and icing go well together for a refreshing lemon taste. Have made several times and it is always a hit. Will continue to be my standard lemon cake.
