This is a good easy cake. The raisins are coated with flour before adding to the batter which prevents them all sinking to the bottom.
I threw in some chopped glace cherries as well, and did not have lemon essence so just grated some lemon rind. The guys at work thought it was a nice normal cake for a change instead of the chocolate or rich cakes that I usually take in. Sue - 07 Nov 2001 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
Pretty good. I made this cake for my neighbor, whose bday is tomorrow. I know she likes lemon pound cakes so I thought I would try this for her. She seemed to really enjoy it. I didn't frost it bc I didn't want it to be too messy, but it's nice even without frosting. She really seemed to enjoy it. It is a bit dry, but maybe some sour cream or something would address that. She said she would have some for breakfast tomorrow with coffee; it is a bit like a breakfast coffee cake, so it's a hit. :o) Thanks for the recipe! - 05 Jul 2010 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
I baked this cake following the recipe. I just added a bit more milk than it said and a few more drops of lemon extract b/c I could tase the flavor of the uncooked flour. Still, the recipe was amazing!!! - 11 Jan 2013 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
