My husband remembers with great affection the lemon cake that (long-gone, alas!) 
Trost's Bakery of Summit, NJ used to make. It was apparently a white cake with 
buttercream frosting (?), but the middle layer of frosting was almost a lemon pudding.

Any chance you can come up with a recipe, so that I can make it for his upcoming birthday?

Many thanks,

 Hi Robin,

 Sadly, I had no success finding the Trost's Bakery recipe. I could not find any mention of a Trost's Lemon Cake at all.

 I will post this for reader input. Maybe one of my readers can help.

 If you have no success finding it, you might try this "White Mountain Cake" recipe:  12-30-2002
