      Syd I made this as directed and the flavors were major lemon. The lemon hot syrup was very strong. The cake turned out a little dry for us, but when it was put all together the blend was very nice. I might cut back on the lemon juice in the topping next time. I did thicken it with 2 tsp. of cornstarch for personal preference. I didn't find that it made a HUGE cake though. Thanks for sharing. :)

      This makes a HUGE, moist pound cake with just the right amount of lemon! I had to make a few adjustments to make it vegan but it didn't effect it at all. Don't skip the Hot Syrup Topping, it really makes the cake. Made for May 09 Veg*n Recipe Swap!
