Ratings & Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sweet & lemony! Made this yesterday ~ deeelicious. The recipe fails to tell you how much of the cream cheese to use in the tunnel mixture & how much to reserve for the glaze. So I used 8 oz for the filling. Then used about 1/3 of a brick of cream cheese for the glaze, which I don't think was enough. Otherwise this is a great recipe!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Lemon Cake Ever Made this cake for a friend's birthday. She loves lemon and said it was the best ever. It is so moist. There was not a piece left. Even the guys bragged how delicious it was.
