ISO: Lemon Cake or Lemony Dessert Recipe

My mother's birthday is next week and she has requested a lemon cake or a lemon dessert of some sort.

I'd love to find something wonderful for her.

Recipes suggestions most welcome!

Thank you!

    1. I recently made Alice Waters' 1-2-3-4 cake using the lemon variation filled it with lemon curd and iced it with a mixture of lemon curd & whipping cream(I couldn't tell you what proportions...just til it held up & tasted right). Faabulously lemony. There's also Ina Garten's Lemon Loaf cake which is outstanding and if you want a more traditional look I don't see why you couldn't bake them off in round pans.
