REVIEW: recipe rating
This recipe was ok. It wasn't fantastic but was still good. I took the previous reviewer's advice and also broiled the topping for a few minutes. I think it could be improved by adding a layer of freshly-made whipping cream. It does taste better once refrigerated and the next day instead of right out of the oven.

easy way to enhance a lemon cake mix; the sw. condensed icing was a quick alternative for icing. i used the oven broiler to bubble and brown it.
