Doesn't this homemade lemon cake recipe just scream 'spring' to you? With the beginning of spring (YAY!) and the arrival of warm weather, I am craving all sorts of fresh flavors this week. I absolutely love the taste of lemon and with it's bright color and fresh flavor, it is the perfect addition to my spring menu. I love making cakes rather than cookies because they are SO much less work! Who wants to sit around rolling out dough or dropping balls of batter on cookie sheets? This lemon cake is just mix, dump in the pan and bake! I made a simple glaze to go on top but you can certainly skip the glaze and the cake is just as tasty. I highly recommend you skip the boxed cake mixes and try this homemade lemon cake recipe instead. It is amazingly easy and you know exactly what the ingredients are!
NOTE: This is a dense cake...think pound cake rather than something light and fluffy. It is not overly sweet but the icing on top adds tons of flavor and sweetness!
