With a subtle taste of lemon, this cake is to die for. All of us at home enjoy this cake. Its especially good with a lemon glaze. I ran out of icing sugar, so had to make do with a few tbsps of icing sugar and lemon juice to prepare a light lemon glaze that I poured over the warm cake, its hardly visible though.
