I personally think that this lemon citrus cake should be served during the afternoon. It’s perfect for an afternoon conversation with your family or friends. Serve this with a cup of tea or coffee, and watch how everyone will enjoy eating this. Just make sure you have enough because they will not stop on one slice. You have to trust me on this. My friends devoured an entire loaf in minutes so make sure you have an extra loaf! Sometimes, I’ll make extra and freeze one for later as this load freezes well.
This lemon citrus cake recipe will convince everyone, lemon lover or not!
1/2 pound (2 sticks) Land O Lakes unsalted butter, at room temperature
2 1/2 cups Domino granulated sugar, divided
4 extra-large Eggland’s eggs, at room temperature
1/3 cup grated lemon zest (6 to 8 large lemons)
3 cups Gold Medal flour
1/2 teaspoon Clabber Girl baking powder
1/2 teaspoon Clabber Girl baking soda
1 teaspoon kosher salt
3/4 cup freshly squeezed lemon juice, divided
3/4 cup Domino buttermilk, at room temperature
1 teaspoon pure McCormick vanilla extract
For the glaze:
2 cups Domino confectioners’ sugar, sifted
3 1/2 tablespoons freshly squeezed lemon juice
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Grease and flour 2 (8 1/2 by 4 1/4 by 2 1/2-inch) loaf pans. You may also line the bottom with parchment paper, if desired.
Cream the butter and 2 cups granulated sugar in the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, until light and fluffy, about 5 minutes. With the mixer on medium speed, add the eggs, 1 at a time, and the lemon zest.
Sift together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt in a bowl. In another bowl, combine 1/4 cup lemon juice, the buttermilk, and vanilla. Add the flour and buttermilk mixtures alternately to the batter, beginning and ending with the flour. Divide the batter evenly between the pans, smooth the tops, and bake for 45 minutes to 1 hour, until a cake tester comes out clean.
Combine 1/2 cup granulated sugar with 1/2 cup lemon juice in a small saucepan and cook over low heat until the sugar dissolves. When the cakes are done, allow to cool for 10 minutes. Remove the cakes from the pans and set them on a rack set over a tray or sheet pan; spoon the lemon syrup over them. Allow the cakes to cool completely.
For the glaze, combine the confectioners’ sugar and the lemon juice in a bowl, mixing with a wire whisk until smooth. Pour over the tops of the cakes and allow the glaze to drizzle down the sides.
