I have baked lemon cakes before but not one with Cognac or Brandy. So I was eager to give this recipe a shot when I saw Zoe posted it on her blog and gave a raving review on it. True to what she said, this cake is moist and lemony with the lemon icing and I used homegrown lemons for this recipe. In fact I doubled the recipe and baked two loaves of this yummy cake and those who had tasted it, gave a thumbs up!
