TIPS
If you’re not following a gluten free diet you can use 2 cups of flour with 1 ½ tsp. baking powder in place of the gluten free Bisquick. This cake has a mild lemon flavor. For a more intense lemon flavor you can substitute 2 teaspoons of lemon extract in place of the fresh lemon juice. To make a lemon glaze combine 2 tablespoons of lemon juice with one cup of confectioner’s sugar and stir until smooth. Then pour the glaze over the cooled cake.
