I always read many different cake flavors, like: lemon, orange, coconut, coffee.. and so on..
So I was wondering if you guys have a basic recipe and just change the extract/juice!
I do it with the coffee cake (it's a vanilla basic cake) and it works great! I have tried a lemon cake today but it didnt taste as lemon :(
AFor lemon cake use the zest in the cake And make a syrup with the juice.
I'm experimenting with flavours at the moment and at first I was really over complicating everything with lots of different recipes and ingredients so I've decided to just stick with my basic and add extracts for now :) maybe 1 or 2 other ingredients but that's it. Until I have more time to experiment, at least.

I did!! I added 1T of lemon zest and some lemon juice (6" cake).. the cake smelled like lemon but I couldnt taste it at all!
