Heavenly Lemon Cake

This is a wonderful lemony pound cake! I highly recommend that you mix the lemon zest with the sugar first, stirring it together with a fork so the lemon oils get fully incorporated into the sugar. This makes a more even lemon flavor throughout the cake as well as dispersing the zest more evenly. I like to let the zest and sugar hang out while the butter is softening. I only used one cup of sugar and it worked out perfectly for me. I used an 8 inch square cake pan and checked the cake after 35 minutes and it was fully done (it could have been ready earlier then that so I would check on it around 30 minutes next time). I also would not skip out on the lemon syrup, this dense cake would be very dry without it! I dusted the cake with powdered sugar to make it a little prettier and cover up the holes from the syrup. This is great served with some blueberry sauce and dollop of whip cream!

I made this into cupcakes, baking for 23 minutes. (I had expert advice from another member to start checking at 16 minutes and follow up in 3 minute intervals. They are so moist and lemony even before adding the syrup. I kept going back and rereading the recipe because the batter seemed so thick, but they baked up light and luscious. Thank you Christina, this recipe is a keeper.

This was LEMONICIOUS! If you love lemon, this cake is for you! My daughter says it tastes like a lemon bar. It is so moist from the lemon syrup, and just the right amount of tartness. It is a rich, sweet cake – but I’m sure you could cut the sugar amount back and it would still be delicious. This one is going in the recipe box!

Excellent lemon cake. It’s very dense and very lemony. My husband couldn’t believe how good it tasted. I did use a 9″ square pan and baked for about 40 minutes. I will make this again, for certain!!
