Very moist and tasty lemon cake with a simple buttercream icing.
You could leave the lemon flavouring out and just use butter cream and strawberry/raspberry jam as a filling with plain butter cream on top
Ensure you do not place icing on a warm cake or it will run everywhere.

This is a TERRIBLE recipe. It doesn't bind, and doesn't taste of lemon. - 17 Mar 2012

Amazing moist cake and tasted delicious! I did double the icing quantity for top, middle and sides and added raspberry jam. - 02 Dec 2011
