A couple things – I tested a few recipes I found on line. What I found were recipes that ended up either too dry, or had an odd balance of tart lemon flavor. None really had the same moistness and perfectly balanced lemon flavor as the Starbucks cake. Another thing was getting a frosting that had the same consistency as the Starbucks cake. The one I have here, hits the spot perfectly!
While baking, I kept it in the oven a little longer than some of the other recipes I tried. It needed a little longer to ensure that it wouldn’t sink in the middle. Unlike other recipes I tried, I added Greek yogurt to this cake recipe, and a little more oil. With these additions, this recipe is spot-on! The ultimate moist, delicious lemon cake!
