Blue Ribbon Recipe

Notes from the Test Kitchen:
Unlike some lemon cakes, this recipe has a very lovely, light lemon flavor... just enough to satisfy. The icing glaze tops it off with just the right amount of sweetness, too. Perfect for a Spring afternoon.

Directions Step-By-Step

In a large mixing bowl, cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy, about 5 minutes. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Stir in lemon juice, peel and extract. Combine the flour, baking soda and salt; add to the creamed mixture alternately with sour cream. Beat just until combined.
Pour into a greased and floured 10-in. fluted tube pan. Bake at 350 degrees F for 55-60 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean. Cool for 10 minutes before removing from pan to a wire rack to cool completely.
For icing, in a small mixing bowl, beat the sour cream and butter until blended. Gradually add confectioners' sugar. Beat in lemon juice and peel. Drizzle over the cake. Store in the refrigerator.

    I made this for my husband who is a lemon lover. He eats a lemon a day. He really liked it. It is not a sickening sweet lemon flavor. Will add it to my repeat recipes. thanks.
