Reviews for Berry-Filled Lemon Cake
"Prepared as written, other than using eggs (not opposed to egg substitute, just didn't have it on hand). Could not taste the lemon, just tasted like ordinary yellow cake. easy to prepare, but I probably won't bother since I would have to try to figure out how much additional lemon to add and where. Poppy seeds aren't a bad idea either, that way people will know that its supposed to be lemon."
"What a great recipe! Used lemon yogurt as others did and it was simply yummy. Family loved it."
"Loved this cake - it was a breeze to make and turned out delicious. I did substitute lemon yogurt for the plain to give it more lemon flavor. Will definitely make again."

"This sounds wonderful. I always love citrus flavored cakes. I also like the use of egg substitute. To vermonttaxlady, egg substitute cartons tell you the egg equivalent."
"Made this for my mother-in-law and she LOVED it! I didn't use the box mix but my homemade to where it was organic and natural. Used 4 egg whites instead of the egg substitute as well. I have a pan that makes a "hollow" circle in the cake ring so I filled it with mixed berries (raspberry, strawberries and blueberries) along with fresh whipped cream. It was such a surprise when you cut into it. This is a keeper."
"3 eggs equal 3/4 cup of egg substitute"
