How to make it

  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
  • Grease and flour 2 (81/2 x 41/4 x 21/2-inch) loaf pans.
  • You may also line the bottom with parchnment 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.
  • Withe the mixer on medium speed, add the eggs, one 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 2 pans, smooth the tops, and bake for 45 min. 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.
  • The End!
