good results, great flavour. i'm always so happy when i bake a cake and it doesn't fall, though i realize that this is rarely the fault of the recipe.
i used plain white vinegar in direct exchange with the apple cider. i do this regularly and don't notice a bit of difference in the results. the cake was not acid at all and had very little lemon flavour. next time, i will use more lemon juice.
i dropped the sugar content to ¾ cup. i like cake, but i don't have a heavy sweet tooth. next time, i will drop this to ? cup.
i used ¼ cup of oil instead of ? cup. worked just as well.
baked this in a 9" springform and it finished in the recommended 35 minutes.
i'm sure my sugar and oil reductions made for a slightly denser cake than the recipe might otherwise make, but i thought it was quite perfect. spongy without chewiness and full of flavour. we ate half the cake this evening dusted with icing sugar and tomorrow i will make a raspberry sauce to pour over the leftovers. we all agreed that the cake demanded a fruity accompaniment.
