I made these in a muffin tin and got 12 mini cakes. Friends that tried it liked it but it wasn't amazing, just good. Not sure if I'd make these again.

Halved this recipe and baked in a 9" springform pan. Very good. Not too sweet. So easy and my family loved it.

Added a little more lemon juice because I prefer it more tart. Family loved it. Very easy to make.
