This recipe is often referred to as "Pockets of Lemon" cake. One of the members here was looking for it and I knew I had it somewhere among my 100s of un-posted recipes. This was number 2 today of going through and finding something for someone on the site out of my own personal collections. Nothing brings back memories more than seeing older recipes or stumbling across one I used to make with one of my grandmas.

I am a lemon cake lover! If you are too you will love this cake. On the back of my recipe card in grandmas writing it said "Lemon Drop Cake" so that is what I'm calling it here.
