Bonnie'S Lemon Cake Recipe @pinch

Attention lemon lovers, this lemon cake is for you. The flavor of the moist and tender cake is perfectly balanced with the tangy and sugary lemon glaze. Poking holes in the cake and glazing while warm means the glaze's lemony flavor seeps into the cake. Susan suggests serving it with berries. We opted for blackberries, but your favorite berry will work. This recipe comes from one of my Mom's friends. This lemon cake is Rich and moist and will not let you down. There is a reason for packaged cake mixes and this is it!!!! When the cake cooled I added a thicker confectioners glaze upon my husband's request.
