Thank you for the icing recipe. I do have a TNT Lemon Glaze icing with fresh lemon juice and zest, will simply add a bit of warm water with the infused rosemary to that.

I'm going to try to find someone who likes to bake to make this. *stares at the other end of the sofa*

My aunt had a lemon cake that was super moist and VERY lemony. I was surprised to find that no one had the recipe. :(

Thanks, Alix. I love all things lemony.

I have 2 small loaf pans. I think I will bake this recipe in them. I may change up the flavor and use Orange or Lime. I wish I still had some Myers Lemons. But my source dried up when my sister-in-law killed her tree.

Score!!!

I got the cake made, fast and easy. I did do the rosemary in the icing trick and it is lightly scented with the rosemary. Queen of all are the Meyer Lemons. (Thanks Kayelle, you have spawned a monster or two) I still have 1/4 cup of lemon juice and two large lemons left!

To serve I put 1 teaspoon of lemon juice on the plate...






The last is a graphic picture of an Ogre eating...beware!!! The cake is 100% Shrek Approved and he wants more.
