How to make it

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees
  • Grease an eight inch cake pan with shortening and flour it, tapping out excess flour. Make sure entire pan is greased and covered with flour very well.
  • In a food processor, blend lemon zest and sugar, until it is fine.
  • Add the sugar and lemon zest to softened butter in mixing bowl and beat until fluffy, for about 3 minutes, on medium speed.
  • In a small bowl, sepearte from sugar mixture, slightly beat eggs, milk, and vanilla together.
  • In another seperate bowl, wisk together flour, baking powder, and salt. .
  • Add the 1/2 of the egg mixture to the sugar in the mixing bowl, while mixing on low speed.
  • After you have added 1/2 of the egg mixture, add 1/2 of the flour mixture, on low speed, add the egg mixture and the flour mixture again, alternating the two, until all is incorporated together.
  • Beat on medium speed until the mixture is smooth and shiny.
  • The longer you beat it, the more air will be incorporated into the batter.
  • Pour batter in greased and floured cake pan and bake at 350 for 25 to 30 minutes, until it is golden brown on top and spongy in the middle and a toothpick comes out clean from the center of the cake.
  • Let it sit for 10 minutes in the pan before releasing it on a cooling rack.
  • Cool completely before icing.
