    The cake was very flat and I added 1/2 tsp of baking powder. Taste was ok but I think I may have over whipped.

    I was a little hesitant, but the cake turned out really well, eventhough it does not rise a lot. I added baking powder, I think it is necessary...and I added 1 cup of flour instead of 3/4 cup. The kids loved it, so I will make it again tomorrow.

    I used baking parchment to make sure it came out of the pan having read another review where it got stuck. Came out great but was a little greasy on the bottom. Tasted delicious and all my guests enjoyed it! Very easy to make! My 11 year made it with step by step instruction from me.

    Someone made this for me and it was delicious!! I bake a lot and I think I know what it too sweet or too tangy (is that even a thing) and this was just perfect. It was like a lemon bar and a cake had a baby<3 going to be making this for family

    Delicious! I live in high altitude (5,561) and the cook time was 25 min. I dont own a standing mixer, so I carefully did everything by hand with wooden spoons and it came out super moist with the perfect amount of lemon flavor. I followed directions to a T and it was a big hit. Will definitely make again!

    Good recipe. Added sugar icing which helped cut the sharpness of the lemon.

    Reducing the amount of sugar is the way to go, I've reduced by half and yet a great cake. I've replaced the lemon with lime, the all-purpose flour with spelt flour and the butter for 1/4 cup coconut oil and 1/4 cup sunflower oil.

    This cake is beautiful, if anything I would decrease the sugar amount by a third, but loved by everyone in the family - Thank you!
