butter flavored shortening
1 1/4 teaspoons
1 1/4 teaspoons
This cake is fool proof! I did tweek it bit to fit me. I added lemon zest to it, I also used margarine out the fridge instead of the shortening. The cake came out wonderful. I think this recipe is great for the least experinced baker to an old pro
this cake is easy to make and has a good flavor
however, if you find it a bit dry add powdered
sugar and butter together over low heat
until you get a buttery glaze add a little lemon
extract if you wish,and pour over warm cake.
example; 1cup p.sugar to 1/3 cup butter
but make it simple make as little or as much
glaze to your cake as you wish .
This is a lovely recipe! I did not have any butter flavoured shortening, so I just used butter and it turned out fine. I added a tad more lemon extract also then what was called for. I halved the recipe and put it in a bundt pan instead of a tube pan. The glaze I used consisted of melted butter, confectioner's sugar, milk and lemon extract. Will definately make again!
I've made this twice; once I didn't have enough sour cream on hand, so I used some cream cheese as well, and the second time I didn't have *any* sour cream, so I reduced the sugar to 1 cup and used condensed milk in place of the cream. Delicious both times. I serve with fresh berries and whipped cream for dessert, or plain with coffee.
I really loved this cake. I put the batter in a smaller pan and it over flew, as soon as it started baking. I just greased a larger pan quickly and poured the batter in. With all this tragedy the cake was awesome! "Foolproof"
I did use a lemon glaze; however, I did not find this to be at all dry. Moist cake with a wonderful flavor!
this recipe was delicious! I loved it and so did my family. My father described as thick, like bread. i really enjoyed this recipe! P.S. i am lactose intolerant so I used rice milk. It tasted great just the same.
What a perfect recipe! I love lemon, I made these for my brothers house-warming party as little flower cakelettes, topped with a simple lemon confectioners glaze. They were a total hit, much more popular than the excellent chocolate cakes I made. This is a recipe I'll make again and again, very classic and elegant. And just as the recipe says perfect with a nice cup of tea.
