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.
