Nutrition & Calorie Comments  

Whole wheat flour will make a flat, dense cake. I used 1/2 whole wheat, 1/2 all purpose flour, 1.25 tsp baking powder, and 1 cup milk. I added 3/8 cup sugar and the lemon zest to the batter. For the glaze, I used the juice of a large lemon and 1/4 cup sugar. Poke holes in the cake before glazing Submitted by:

I suppose the cake part of it turned out ok, but somewhat tasteless. The part I had a problem with was the glaze. It says combine sugar, water & lemon juice, but does not list amounts on any of those ingredients. I would not make this again. Submitted by:

A agree with others it was more like a bread then cake! I guess it still counts for a nice homemade dessert with a hint of sweetness. Maybe I will use it for my breakfast snack. What's up with the recipe not telling you how much water? I put the amount of sugar listed in the cake. Submitted by:

For the topping I used the juice of a lemon, added the sugar and grated lemon zest and bought to the boil. I left it to cool slightly and then poured over the cake. It made a lovely crunchy lemony topping. Submitted by:

I would use a smaller pan so cake will be thicker. Added some lemon flavoring and lemon zest to the cake - only baked for 24 minutes in a convection oven - tasted OK - low fat, healthy fats and fast to put together - we'll eat it again Submitted by:
