Non-Lemon-Lovers need not apply!

This lemon cake is perfect for brunch but also for dessert, with fruit or sorbet. The baked lemon cake gets soaked all over with a luscious lemon syrup. You are in for a treat!

Yummy lemon cake recipe!

This is a decidedly dairy cake. Sorry, guys! Don’t substitute margarine or oil for the butter; you will notice the difference. Yogurt: Ditto. Buttermilk will work as well. A friend of mine took a large chunk of this cake on a plane trip to Chicago and shared it with the stewardesses. One of them e-mailed me that she must have more and asked if she could have the recipe. I am used to my recipes getting a lot of mileage on the ground, but this was the first time at 30,000 feet!
