Memaw knows how to make a lemon cake! Moist, delicious, and oh so lemony! Easy to make too! Thank you for sharing!! I didn't make any changes at all!
I made this today and we just had a piece of it. It is very moist and very tasty and the frosting/icing is the best part. Anyway, if you are looking for a very moist, peachy, lemony cake, this is perfect. I used a bunt pan and it was done in about 47 minutes. Thank you Acygan for putting this recipe up!
Sounds great. Only I would make the lemon cake from scratch.
I did swap peach nectar for lemon lime soda (I used diet Sun Drop), I used sugar-free lemon pudding mix and otherwise followed instructions / ingredients per the original. This cake is FANTASTIC!! Lemon-lime soda makes a great substitute if you don't have peach nectar around. I would recommend halving the glaze - I thought the 2 cups of powdered sugar concoction was too much - it puddled around the base and made the bottom a little soggy, and I had to keep pouring it back into the bowl and re-drizzling it over the top trying to use it all. The glaze is a great addition, but I think half would be perfect. Great recipe!!
My kids loved this cake--it's sweet and the flavors are sunny and bright. I think I prefer more natural flavors, but overall, a four star recipe. Thanks for sharing!
