If you are looking for a light cake that doesn’t make a huge portion, look no further than this delicious Lemon Snack Cake. Tangy, moist cake is topped with a sweet, fluffy frosting and, best of all, it can all be made in one pan! Simply mix the dry ingredients in your 8-inch baking pan, and then add lemon zest, egg, and margarine to the mixture. While the cake is baking, prepare your homemade frosting and spread onto cake once cool. I like to serve in small square pieces for a delicious light dessert any time of day. Enjoy!
