Lemon Delicious Cake

Most of my baking gets taken into work for my boss to taste and test.  He is prone to brutal honesty (which I love) but is a great tester especially as his wife, Stephanie, is an awesome baker too.  If my dish passes the test then I know its really good.  This recipe however is a Donna Hay recipe kindly converted by Steph.  I was lucky to try some at work (3 days after it was made) and couldn't believe how moist and delicious it was so of course I said "recipe please".  So thanks Steph for sharing your marvellous conversion, keep them coming.
