Would make this again.
This is a wonderful cake! It's very easy to make, and yet such an elegant dessert. The flavor of the lemon is exquisite without being too tart. Serving this cake with fresh cream (I used fresh whipped cream) and berries is essential. Perfect for summer, or for just making you think of summer on a cold winter day. 5 stars
