Here’s the recipe I reach for when I need something tried and true. The old-fashioned cake has a tangy lemon flavor and is a nice dessert for potlucks or most any occasion. —Marianna King, Gastonia, North Carolina
I love lemon cake, so when I found this recipe in our local newspaper, I decided to try it. I've been making it ever since. Whenever I bring it to a potluck supper I always take the recipe along, because someone's sure to ask for it!
