    I followed this recipe exactly. I think this recipe is for a smaller pan as there is little height to the cake. I will not make this cake again.

    Yes I make this again and again, it is fast, easy and when you are looking for a short cut and in a hurry, you can't beat using a cake mix as a base to pound cakes, cookies or cup cakes. Thank you for sharing and I will pass this along to my family and friends. Happy baking any time of the year.

    This was very good, but I wanted more lemon flavour... Next time I would add a tsp of lemon extract and maybe some zest too to the batter. I made a lemon glaze for this, 1 c of icing sugar with a few T of milk to the right consistency, as well as 1/2 a t of lemon extract... All in all a nice moist cake, very good.

    I have used this recipe several times and really enjoy it. Sometimes I used yellow or other flavor of cake.

    This recipe seems to be so easy. This is just what I was looking for as a desert for Easter dinner. But I am thinking of adding a lemony glaze on top.
