"I made this for my moms birthday and everyone who ate it loved it. It didn't last for more than a day"
"Very good recipe. This makes a nice big,tall cake. It tastes delicious! I sometime add coconut to the batter for additional taste and texture."
"A tall cake with great texture, as others have said. After trying this cake once with lemon flavoring, I substituted coconut extract to make coconut cupcakes, which were great! I used powdered sugar when I made the lemon glaze the first time, so it didn't run too much."
"This is a tasty, most cake with a nice, slightly crunchy, crust. I added poppy seeds & poked holes in the warm cake with a wooden skewer before glazing, so the glaze (which I thickened) would absorb a bit into the cake. Otherwise I followed the directions as given. This is a keeper in my opinion!"
"This recipe is a favorite for when I want something lemon-flavored. It's a little messy when brushing on the glaze, but nothing that a little waxed paper under the cooling rack can't handle. I'm not sure what vah4bm is talking about; I have the original recipe clipping from 1999, and it says "beat in extracts." That includes vanilla."
