Check out our hosts this week for the full recipe: Treats and The Beauty of Life. As I mentioned, I made this before Easter so I could take it to my family since I was planning to go home anyway. I typically don't care too much for lemon things so I didn't expect much from this. Looking over the recipe, it seemed pretty simple and straightforward, but I was surprised that there was only the zest from the lemons and no juice used.

I thought this cake was pretty good. It is very similar to a pound cake with a hint of lemon. If it is going to be lemon, I think I would prefer more intense lemon taste and also a glaze icing. This was a big hit with my mom though, so I'm glad she liked it.
