Very nice old fashion type recipe. I added a crumb topping to the top. I used fresh picked blueberries and ate it warm with whipped topping. Fairly moist cake which has lasted into the next day nicely. Def. recommend the 8x8 pan as in the directions.

This cake is a bit dense. Very old fashioned cake. I didnt have lemon zest so i used some butter extract. I think the zest would of made a heck of a difference in the flavor. I made it in a loaf pan. The cake is not too sweet at all. Great with coffee. I didnt take a bite and say: OMG this is awesome. Just... hhmm it's ok.

I needed some breakfast cakes and used this recipe to accomplish that task. They were good tasting and made up quickly. I added cream cheese instead of the shortening and put a crumble on the top. I will use this again for a coffee cake next time. We shall see! :)

My husband isn't a huge blueberry fan and loved this cake. I made it as written but added about a tsp. of vanilla out of habit. I also made this gluten free with gluten free AP flour and xantham gum.

This was great! it was easy to make also. I cut back slightly on the sugar but I think I would not the next time, the cake I made could have been sweeter. It was still great,( stick to the recipe) Its a good one gigi
