Lemon Layer Cake
Total TimePrep: 35 min. Bake: 25 min. + cooling
Let me tell you about this beautiful cake. I've bee n baking since I was a young girl. Not often do cake recipes get my attention!! This cake is dense, but melts in your mouth. This fantastic lemon syrup is the secret that puts this cake in another level! This cake is a must try!!
Too much work for a mediocre cake. Very light lemon flavor. Best part was the frosting...but I have been making a similar frosting for years. Very disappointing results for the time spent.
Excellent cake! The only thing I used different was 1% milk instead of 2%. I also used 4 squeezed lemons and just had enough for cake and icing. Everyone raves about this cake!
The syrup is the key to how flavorful this cake is. It is a dense cake. I overbaked it a bit but that was user error. I also noticed the contradiction in the recipe but just went with what worked for me time-wise. You would definitely want the syrup to cool before putting the frosting on. The frosting is delicious!!! This was my first cake from scratch and my first layer cake, so I knew it wouldn't look like the picture, but my frosting was much fluffier than the photo.
A lot if work for a mediocre recipe. It was just "too"...too sweet, too tart
This cake didn’t rise properly, was way too sweet and didn’t have enough lemon flavor. I followed the instructions carefully including the hints offered by Alissa. So disappointed!
Comments to you began in February so our dilemma may not have existed then, however, I just received this email. Either way, I wonder if anyone, anymore, considers the cost and ease of a recipe. This is loaded with lots of eggs, lots of butter and lots of sugar. I have not been able to purchase any of these items for three weeks and have found no flour. Can you pull out some ideas for people with empty pantries and a family to cook for? Now sure isn't the time for a $20 cake
I am consistently disappointed in Taste of Home recipes. This will be my last.
you use the syrup to put on the cake layers before frosting the cake
Okay, I need to know what the syrup is used for......
