  1. I made this for my future sister in laws Bridal shower and everyone loved it and were shocked when I said I made it because they thought it was gotten from a bakery. I made 2 lemon layers, 2 almond cake layers and used a plain cream cheese frosting and a blackberry compote between the layers, it was honestly heavenly! I reduced the amount of powered sugar in the frosting to only 2 cups because I thought the sweetness to cream cheese tang was just right at only 2 cups. Thank you John for the amazing recipes!

  2. I made this cake and divided the batter into two 8-inch rounds and set my timer for 30 minutes. The cake center sprung back when touched (after only 30 minutes at 350) so I knew it was done. The only problem was my cakes came out so dry like they were overcooked. I am not sure where I went wrong, but I am so bummed! 🙁

  3. Definitely making this cake, lemon or pineapple are my favorite flavors for cakes.

  4. ok…you have inspired me to try this delicious looking cake! I appreciate the explanations of things as well! I did have one question…why did you mix the lemon juice and buttermilk? Thanks again!!

  5. I just took a little bite out of the bottom of the cake, (so no one will see) OMG!!! It's amazing!! I am so happy! It's perfectly delicious!! It has a bright lemon flavor and there are great little bites of lemon skin in there. It's perfect!! Everyone should try this cake. I am keeping mine as a naked cake because it's sweet enough for me. If I add sugar frosting to it, it would be too sweet for my taste. But wow! Yum tender lemon city. Thank you again for this wonderful recipe! =;)

  6. I am excited to say that I am making this lovely lemon cake today. I just put it into the oven! I am using a shallow sunflower bunt pan, which is going to be just as delicious and tender as the two layer cakes. I adore lemon!! I even wear lemon perfume!! LOL . I am going to make the frosting inside the layers of my sunflower bunt pan. Thank you so very much for just being you and making the world a more cheerful and happy place, one great recipe at a time. You are the best!! =;)
