Does anyone have a go to moist flavorful scratch lemon cake recipe? I'm not seeing too many lemon cakes with high ratings on cc. Thanks for the help.

I usually make a lemon drizzle cake but instead of lemon zest(I hate the stuff) I put lemon oil into the mix.

Tastes great and made even better with lemon curd inside and lemon icing on top icon_biggrin.gif

I've been using Sylvia Weinstock's classic yellow cake recipe as the base for my lemon cake:


I add 1/2 tsp natural lemon extract and the zest of 1 or 2 lemons. I'm actually making this for a wedding next month--the bride swore she hated lemon cake until she tasted this!

I use Toba Garrett's recipe from "The Well Decorated Cake." I find it nice and moist, and with enough lemon flavor.
