If you love going to Starbucks, like I do, then it is very likely that you also LOVE their lemon cake! This stuff is almost addictive. I normally like lemon desserts anyway, but I find myself wanting this all of the time. So….I have been on the hunt for a Starbucks Lemon Cake Copycat Recipe and I think I have found it!

You’ve got to try it!

I hope you enjoy this recipe as much as I did. I did have to purchase a loaf pan, like THIS ONE, because that is something my kitchen didn’t have.
