This lemon cake is a winner, trust me when I say so. It is simply the best even for not so cakey folks. It is spongy, lemony, spacy, sweet and lemony, oops I just used lemony again! It is simply lemony.

Now I know I have been loading you with lots of snacks lately, but trust me, this cake is a must make.

Let me share some little secret with you all. Everyone loves homemade cake. This season, make sure you offer this cake to that neighbor across the street whom you meet daily. Make sure you wrap some for your colleague at work, send some to family and friends. I tell you my friend, the recipients of this delicacy will never forget you. Even though they may, ah your cake will speak for you.

Did I convince you enough to make the lemon cake? Maybe not, I will proceed to teach you anyway:
