I threw in some chopped glace cherries as well, and did not have lemon essence so just grated some lemon rind. The guys at work thought it was a nice normal cake for a change instead of the chocolate or rich cakes that I usually take in. Sue

Pretty good. I made this cake for my neighbor, whose bday is tomorrow. I know she likes lemon pound cakes so I thought I would try this for her. She seemed to really enjoy it. I didn't frost it bc I didn't want it to be too messy, but it's nice even without frosting. She really seemed to enjoy it. It is a bit dry, but maybe some sour cream or something would address that. She said she would have some for breakfast tomorrow with coffee; it is a bit like a breakfast coffee cake, so it's a hit. :o) Thanks for the recipe!

I baked this cake following the recipe. I just added a bit more milk than it said and a few more drops of lemon extract b/c I could tase the flavor of the uncooked flour. Still, the recipe was amazing!!!

This was so easy and turned out great. I made it with soy milk and fake butter since we have a dairy allergy in the family and it worked just fine that way.
