    This is a keeper! I added a 1/4 cup of coconut flour & 1 & 1/4 cups of AP flour...experimenting...the cake was moist & lemony. Lemon extract could work in this recipe if you don’t have fresh lemons.

    This was really good and sweet! But a little too sweet. Definitely making this again! (But with less sugar)

    This was ok. Takes longer then 60 min. If I made again would add more lemon to the batter and less to the frosting

    I have made this cake a couple of times and my whole family loves it. Really yummy.

    Really nice taste, loved it! As a trick, mix the egg yolks separately until fluffy and add them to the batter. This will make the cake less dense and rise a lot more. I also make it in smaller forms as I have zero patience and I want it done as soon as possible.

    Perfect! Make this weekly.

    It was amazing! I made it for my family over the holidays and I couldn’t have asked for a bigger hit! It’s the perfect amount of lemon and has the fluffiest consistency. I did take it out at 47 minutes because it had browned wonderfully and it was cooked perfectly. I’ll definitely make this again!

    Great recipe, but in a glass pan it takes way longer than 60 min, I generally have to add about 15-20 min more to get rid of the raw dough in the middle.
