      This cake is outstanding - so moist and full of flavor. The instructions are dead-on (40 minutes was perfect). Also, be sure to use freshly squeezed lemons for the juice - makes all the difference. This recipe is perfect for couples (or singles) who like cakes but never make them because they can't eat them fast enough. Just the right size!

      Wasn't a fan of this. The flavor was great, very lemony and not very sweet, but it was too dense. Felt like we had eaten rocks afterwards. I tried to chill it a bit, and that made it even worse. Good thing this recipe doesn't make much, we tossed the rest.

      I too found this to be a dense cake and it didn't rise at all either. And I followed the recipe properly. But it was definitely a very moist and flavorful cake..nice and lemony. I had cut these into bars and they were good especially when they were warm. Thanks for sharing your recipe KitchenManiac.
