This was a moist cake. Very good, although I can't say there was much of a lemon taste. I went back to review my recipe thinking that maybe I left out lemon juice...not an ingredient. A mild, good, moist cake regardless.

Made this to share at a meeting and it got lots of compliments. The artificial lemon taste was perhaps a little strong for me, but overall a nice cake and a nice change from the usual. The recipe correction note by walterandkathy is important--pour HALF the batter into 13x9 pan, then top with half the topping, etc. My batter was quite thick, not really of "pouring" consistency.

very easy - everyone liked it. No need to dirty a bowl to beat the eggs, just put them in with the cake mix . They don't need to be beaten first. Marie
