A word of warning.. it's tricky trying to get all the pips out. You may get an occasional straggler in the finished product. Meyer lemons have less pips, so if you can get those, use them.

Also, this cake definitely has a bitter/sweet taste... which I love. But some of you may not.

    Thank you! I made this today and it sure is tangy. Delicious, hubby really loved it.
    I halved the icing mixture and just made it with lemon juice and half a teaspoon of butter because we like it thin and drizzly.
    Thanks again. Love your recipes.
