This is a beautiful cake I would not hesitate to recommend or to make again. It’s moist, not too fluffy yet not too dense. It has that wonderful richness only butter can contribute and just the right level of fresh citrus flavor (I used lime rather than lemon). I did take the plunge and buy self-rising flour for these, as my understanding is the protein content is different – much closer to cake flour than all purpose. In other words, just adding leaveners to all purpose flour supposedly won’t duplicate it exactly even tho’ it's an acceptable substitute. I frosted these with Easy Cream Cheese Frosting, also from this site, to which I added a tablespoon of grated lime zest. This cake and that frosting? The perfect combo.
