This cake is niether lovely nor light. I'm not sure why there are so many great reviews. Even after following everyone's advice by upping the lemon(I tripled both zest and juice) and replacing 1/2 the butter with applesauce, I found the cake, at BEST, okay(topped with icing and blueberries of course). It needs some serious alterations. Too heavy(even with reduced butter!) and very bland. And the cooking time needs to be shortened. Not worth making, considering the mess left over and the so-so cake. Well, maybe I was expecting something spectacular considering the reviews. Take this advice, and don't make this cake. It isn't inedible but it sure isn't worth the time or ingredients. There are better recipes out there.
