Believe it or not, I was experimenting a new recipe.  It didn’t come out the way as I expected it.  If you know me, throwing my food into the garbage is the last thing I want to do or see.

The night I made it, I was preparing for coffee time at church the next day.  Had I thrown it away, I might not have enough food to serve.  So, my quick thought was to turn it into something different, but yummy. Amazingly, this was another success.  All my church family members just couldn’t get enough of this super lemon layer cake.  Before I know it, it was all gone.

Before publishing this recipe, I have been thinking hard what I should name this cake.  I remember everybody’s comment was, “Wow! This cake is so moist and lemon-y.”  One day, I was thinking my favorite lemon candy from Japan.  It is called “Super Lemon” which tastes like lemon.  It is super sour.  People either hate or love it.  However, this cake has so much lemon flavor in it.  It gets the perfect balance of tang and sweet flavor.  It was that light bulb switching on moment.  Ding, ding, ding.....That was how this cake recipe named, "Super Lemon Layer Cake".
