I thought this cake was too sweet and had a cheap texture.

This exceeded my expectations for a cake mix. No artificial cake mix flavor! I made the cake, just as written, in a Bundt pan. I left out the water in the glaze, which I brushed on with a pastr...

I have been searching for this recipe for quite some time, now. VERY similar to one of my aunt's recipes. DELICIOUS!! Only changes I would make is that my cake took only 35 minutes to bake,...

This is a good summery dessert. It is very fresh-tasting and seems light, although a glance at the ingredients will reveal that impression to be misleading. The cake was great and people enjoyed...

This is very good, the lemon flavor is just right. Only changes I made were using 1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce and 1/4 cup oil (instead of 3/4) to reduce the fat a bit. Also used yogurt butt...

If you're looking for tangy lemon flavor, choose this recipe! A tip: If using a bundt pan, poke holes in the crevices (as opposed to the crowns) and pour half the glaze. Then, add another cup...

Really good and lemony. I made it in a Bundt pan instead of the 9X13 and it came out fine.

Awesome! Super easy, incredibly moist and tangy! I put the glaze on when the cakes were still warm. I also made 2 loaf size cakes instead of one large one. This recipe is a definite keeper!
