    Lovely easy recipe. I didnt bother with the icing as mine had a nice crunchy top and we didn't wait for it to cool before eating it up!

  • Great recipe, lovely lemon

    Great recipe, lovely lemon flavour.  I skipped the icing, the top was deliciously crunchy, it was lovely warm.  Would make a nice dessert with some ice cream.  I used almond milk instead of cows.

  • Lovely recipe, as stated

    Lovely recipe, as stated below it does not specify when to add the juice into the cake so I just add it at step 2 (Scrape sides down with spatula and mix for further 10 sec / speed 4) and it works out fine. I had heaps of lemon so juiced 3 to make it extra lemony!

    Worked as described. ? Where to add lemon juice to the cake batter. I took a stab in the dark and it seemed to work out fine. Lovely for afternoon tea.
