This is a rich cake, perfect to serve with fresh fruit and whipped cream. It will freeze nicely, and you could bake it as a loaf. Because is is a more dense cake, it is perfect for those fancy bundt pans too, as it will hold the shape. Sometimes I add a bit of lemon oil or zest- but really this is great just as it is

Easy recipe to make. I added some lemon zest. Good cake to serve with strawberries and ice cream. I will probably make again.

Great recipe! This is one of my favorite go-to cake recipes. It always turns out so well, and everyone loves it. I can be "dressed up" with berries and whipped cream or frosting or ice cream, or it's delicious just as is.

I absolutely love this recipe. I make it often and I have shared the recipe with several people. It always comes out of the oven smelling and Iooking delicious. I also love to toast a slice and eat it that way.

I have been married almost 28 years and have made this cake so many times. I have my things in storage now and could not find them. This has been so much help and I definitely will make this cake again and again.
