     Grate in some fresh lemon zest, that should enhance the flavour more. You can also add artificial lemon flavouring you find in bottles.

    I would not add the juice of a lemon unless you want the cake to taste a little on the sour side.

    I would add grated lemon zest to the cake mix .. and then drizzle it with icing made from icing sugar and lemon juice afterwards.

    Don't add juice to the cake mix .. it will make the cake taste sour.

    What Girl said - zest not juice will give the lemon flavor a punch without making it sour.

    Add a little lemon juice to the mix when you make it.

    Just squeeze the juice of a lemon into the batter. Just remember to take out the pits.
