You can double this recipe, just use a 9×13 baking pan.
You can add more lemon zest for a stronger lemon taste, or use lemon frosting or a lemon glaze. You can also mix the batter in a bowl for neater, easier mixing. Be sure to follow the directions the same way – mixing the dry ingredients then making the depressions for the wet ingredients. Don’t forget to grease you pan. Although I have not used Gluten Free flour mixes for this recipe, many people have and said the cake turns out wonderful! “Yes it is yummy and very moist. It even works with gf flour mixes!”
