    Looks and smells delicious. Added extra lemon zest as a personal preference and 1/2 tablespoon less of sugar for the top. Scrumptious! Really appreciate the buttermilk recipe as I never have any on hand...and this one actually worked.

    I did not grease the pan enough, so the cake wasn't pretty. However, my 4 children all begged for more. It is a delicious, light cake that comes together super fast.

    I actually made two cakes, one with fresh raspberries and one with fresh blueberries. They were both scrumptious, and my family and I loved them. My only complaint is that the cake was not sweet enough to balance the tartness of the berries. However, I think that this could easily be fixed by spreading a vanilla glaze or raspberry jam on top of the cake. Overall, this recipe was simple and easy to make, and I will most certainly bake this cake again!

    I made this cake 3 times, it is SO good! Keeping this as one of my favorites, it's moist and flavorful. I make a lot of tea cake type recipes like this, and this is a great one for sure.
