Yes, I did buy the big bag of lemons at Costco. 🙂 So now I need to use them up! This cake recipe is for a light cake with a lemony glaze on top. If you like lemon you will love this cake.
- 1/2 cup butter
- 1/2 cup canola oil
- 1 and 3/4 cup sugar
Then add in and mix well:
- 3/4 cup plain unsweetened yogurt (equivalent to 3 eggs)
- Zest of 3 lemons
- 1 tsp vanilla
Sift dry ingredients in a separate bowl:
- 3 cups flour
- 1/3 cup cornstarch
- 2 tsp baking powder
- 1 and 1/2 tsp baking soda
- 1 tsp salt
Mix wet ingredients in a separate bowl:
- 1/4 cup lemon juice
- 3/4 cup buttermilk
Alternate adding dry and remaining wet ingredients into the batter until mixed well.
Bake 350 degrees F for approximately 45 mins in a tube, bundt or 9 by 13 pan. Cool and then top with the glaze.
- 1 and 1/2 cup icing sugar
- 3 tbsp lemon juice (a bit more if needed)
- 1/2 tsp vanilla
Mix the glaze well and spread over the top, letting the sides drip down.

You have a lovely n delicious looking blog… Tried the lemon drizzle cake the batter was so very much like the egg one. But my cake didnt rise much and also was falling apart. It was super soft in texture but not that airy and well sliced as yours. Please help… TIA
I am re-doing this cake today as I have been having trouble with this recipe since I switched ovens. I have added in 1/3 cup cornstarch.
