How to make it
- Heat oven to 325°F.
- Using a 10-cup decorative tube pan or a 12-cup Bundt pan, coat with baking spray and set aside. Place a wire rack inside a baking sheet covered in foil (to catch drippings) and spray the rack with baking spray.
- In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, cornmeal, baking powder, baking soda and salt.
- In a large bowl beat butter, sugar, lemon zest, and lemon juice with a mixer (or using the beater attachment on a stand mixer) on medium speed until light and fluffy. Beat in eggs one at a time until blended. With mixer on low, alternatively beat in flour mixture and buttermilk or yogurt until batter is mixed and fairly smooth (careful not to over mix).
- Scrape mixture into prepared pan and smooth the top with a rubber spatula.
- Bake 50-65 minutes until a wooden pick inserted into cake comes out clean. Cook cake on wire rack for 5 minutes.
- Meanwhile, make the glaze by whisking glaze ingredients together in a small bowl (sugar will not totally be dissolved).
- Invert cake from pan onto the rack that was placed over a baking sheet. Brush glaze all over hot cake until absorbed (sugar crystals will be evident). Cool completely. Transfer cake to a serving plate and cover, allowing cake to rest several hours or overnight.
- Enjoy with reckless abandonment! Serves 20. Store, covered at room temperature, for up to 4 days.
