Ingredients Needed:

  • Flour + Baking powder + Salt
  • Butter
  • Sugar
  • Lemon zest + Lemon juice
  • Eggs
  • Milk
  • Powdered sugar

Can I Use Bottled Lemon Juice? Yes. Fresh or bottled juice will both work. However, you will need fresh lemon for the zest. If you have lemon oil, that will work in place of the fresh lemon zest.

Recipe Notes:

  • Your butter ( 2 sticks!) needs to be softened before using. Cold butter may affect the consistency of your cake.
  • Be sure not to over mix your batter. Simply mix until there are no dry spots left in the batter. Remember to scrape the sides of your mixing bowl as you are mixing.
  • After baking the cake, let it cool for just 5-8 minutes. Then, apply the glaze to the warm cake. Once it’s glazed, let it cool completely before adding the icing.
  • Keep any leftover cake in the refrigerator.

Tips for Removing Your Cake:

  • Grease the pan generously. I like to use cooking spray with flour included.
  • When you are ready to remove the cake, run a sharp knife gently along the edge and middle of the pan.
  • Tip the pan upside down on top of a cake platter/plate. Using a large plate works well for this.
  • Let the cake fall naturally. If it’s not happening, tap the bottom of the pan gently to give it a little help.
