Wonderful cake that wasn't too lemony! Great glaze, too. I served it with a pretty lemon/orange/lime sherbet and it went perfectly. Thanks for the recipe!

This recipe is wonderful! I added a glaze, made with 3 cups confectioner's sugar, 2 tbsp lemon juice, 1 tsp milk, 2 tbsp butter and 1 cup coconut - this added a bit of texture to the cake. It also covers up the holes! Loved it!

A very moist, very lemony cake. I also make an additional glaze of lemon juice and powdered sugar to go over it after it is cooled...YUM!

This cake was good but way, way, way to sweet (and I like sweet). Could not taste the lemon and I substituted lemon juice for the water in my glaze. I also only had a white cake so made it with that.
