I've been baking for years. This is a fantastic recipe that you can easily flavor into other cakes. The texture is moist and soft but strong enough to stack (I doubled the recipe and had 4 layers). When I made it again I added twice the lemon zest and a teaspoon of powdered ginger for a bright flavor, and used homemade lemon curd for the filling. Really great recipe!
