I've never rated a recipe a "1" before, but this deserves it: it's nasty. I LOVE lemon and was so excited to make this cake from all the great reviews. Needless to say, I was extremely disappointed by the recipe. I'm blaming it all on the soda. I used Sierra Mist, but I doubt Sprite or 7 Up would have created a better result. The whole cake had this weird chemical taste ... ugh, like I said, nasty. My advice is to modify "Lisa's Chocolate Chocolate Chip Cake" recipe using lemon cake mix and pudding mix, omitting the chocolate chips and adding a couple tablespoons of lemon juice. I did this the day after making this disgusting cake (because I was REALLY craving lemon cake) and it turned out simply delicious. No chemical weirdness, MUCH moister than this cake because that recipe uses sour cream, basically, just a million, trillion times better. I don't know how ya'll loved this so much, but i STRONGLY recommend using that other recipe instead!
