Reviews for Golden Lemon Cake
"I made this for a church's ladies night out. I used lemon flavored olive oil for the vegetable oil. I got rave reviews and the recipe was requested numerous times."
"My family loved this cake. Since I love lemon, I thought it was yummy.Robin"
"It's scrumptious and tastes way better then any store bought lemon cakes. I'm not sure how many holes a normal person pokes into the cake, but I went a little crazy and did the outsides too. After glazing it, I took the remaining glaze that fell onto the platter and glazed it a second time. It turned out super moist."
"I have made a similar cake like this . I use a lemon cake mix bake according to directions, while just out of oven I poke holes with backof wooden spoon then pour cooked lemon pudding into them and over the cake. I refrigerate the cake. While it is cooking mix up another lemon pudding mix, cool thenfold it into cool whip topping andspread over entire cake, simply YUMMY"
