I tried this recipe, and it''s amazing because of first it''s simple ingredients, which are readily available at home, and it''s amazing in taste too. just a suggestion, can the lemon flavor be increased by any means, as it has a very mild taste of it.

This eggless lemon cake is a fabulous recipe. I loved this cake mainly because of it''s lemon flavour. It is very different from the regular vanilla or chocolate cakes that we have. It has a very subtle flavour of lemon which is just perfect.
