REVIEW: 5 star recipe rating
I baked this afternoon and the cake is perfect. I had no vanilla n lemon flavoring so I added almond essence n the rind of an orange plus I added grated nutmeg. My mom could not believe the cake came from me and all who tasted it liked it. Thanks alot

The recipe calls for 2.. 9 inch pans, the pic show a bundt cake does it make a difference?

The user who submitted the photo didn't add a review with any info as to whether or not they adjusted the cooking time (I assume you would have to, but having not tested this recipe personally I can't answer that question). I would follow the recipe as directed.

It worked out great! One thing I did was use the fresh juice & zest of 2 lemons instead of extract. It lasted 2 days in my house!

Foolproof cake! I've made it three times now. Anyone know how much cocoa powder I could add to turn it into a chocolate cake? The crumb is so tender and moist in this recipe I'd love to use this but in chocolate form. Thanks in advance!
