Author Notes

Any berry and lemon combination is favorite of mine for summer. This is a nice moist cake thats light and refreshing and not too sweet. I make this vegan by using vegan butter, soymilk, and a non-dairy yogurt (or applesauce). Trust me, no one would ever know it's vegan. —thesinglebite
