Ok, I made this cake exactly as stated...it was almost too sour to eat but it had wonderful flavor..I KNOW..doesn't make sense but it's true. That is why I'm giving this 5 stars...because with a little tweaking, this cake is fantastic! If you love, and I mean, LOVE lemon..this cake is for you. Here's what I changed...made cake as stated plus 1TBS of zest. Made the lemon syrup with real lemons and decreased the amount to 1/3 cup and conf. sugar to 2C (heated in microwave). I made a 2 layer cake (poking holes in cakes with a fork) and divided the syrup between them (leaving them in their pans for about an hour after soaking) Then frosted with a cream cheese frosting which was lightly flavored with 1TBS of zest and 1-2TBS of real lemon juice (to taste) and refrig. overnight. WOW... Absolutely our only lemon cake from now on. Delicious!
