This cake was wonderful. I left out the lemon curd and icing and used lemon icing instead (icing sugar and lemon juice). Topped it with strawberries. This recipe also works if you replace the milk with soya milk. Wonderful. - 18 Jun 2012
I made this. I doubled up on ingredients and made it as one large cake instead of sandwich cake. Topped with lemon icing sugar mix. It was very moist and lemony and everyone loved it. Very easy to make especially using the trusty food mixer - 01 Jul 2015
I made this very soft cake this morning and turned out very good. I baked it for 45 mins at a temp of around 160 C. I also added vanilla. I really love it. - 12 Aug 2016
