Great tasting, loved it! Very dense, which I also like. My cake did not rise much at all, but still very good. I used nonfat greek yogurt instead of sour cream and also reduced the sugar a little.

I put a glaze on top (mix powder sugar and lemon juice) and that made it extra lemon delicious!!!

I made these into muffins and were fantastic! The sour cream adds a nice tang to it, and they're very moist. I added a little more lemon juice because DH and I like a more lemony flavour. Thank you for sharing your recipe!

WOW is this great! My family loves it and it helped use up some sour cream I had on hand. Moist, delicious and even better the next day. I do have to double the recipe in order to fill my bundt pan but that's ok

Delicious! Low Carb, moist, very rich and buttery. My husband and I love it, it is added to our favorate. I used yogurt instead of the sour cream. I was a little concerned as the batter was very wet, but it turned out to be great.

Delicious! Light, moist cake with a hint of lemon flavor. I strongly recommend using real butter. I made this twice, once with margarine & once with butter; the time I used margarine, the middle of the cake fell & ended up a bit gooey. I used a loaf pan & it was done cooking in 45 minutes.

I must be weird, but this flopped for me. Nothing but a buttery, somewhat lemony mass of way too many poppy seeds.
