This recipe was given to one of my Uncles 25 years ago from a co-worker. It has been a much requested recipe in our family ever since. One of my favorites. *The secret to the lemony flavor is the thin glaze which sinks into the cake and then hardens and gives it a really nice texture. I love the bottom where the glaze is thickest!
