Lucious Lemon Cake

This recipe has been in the family for years, a neighbor of my grandparents used to make it when I was little and then my grandmother and other relatives started making it too. It's pretty much a staple to most family celebrations on my dad's side of the family. When in doubt? Lemon cake wins the bout. Or something like that.
