Prep:

Cook:

45 Min

Ingredients

2 c
self-rising flour
1 stick
butter, softened
3/4 c
sugar **see note
2
eggs
1/2 c
milk
1/4 c
lemon juice
1 Tbsp
lemon zest
1/2 tsp
salt

ICING

2 tsp
lemon zest
1 Tbsp
lemon juice
1 c
powdered sugar

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Heat oven to 350. Spray a loaf pan, or muffin tin.
Cream the butter, sugar and lemon zest together; beat until fluffy.
2
Add eggs one at a time, beating well between. Add 1 cup of the flour and the salt, mix well. Add the lemon juice.
3
Add the second cup of flour, mixing well. Add the milk. Continue to mix until all ingredients are incorporated.
4
Pour into loaf pan or muffin tins. Bake until lightly browned and pulling away from the sides, or approximately 35-40 minutes for the loaf pan, 20-25 for muffin tin.
5
Remove from oven to cooling racks. Poke holes in the top.
6
Combine the remaining lemon zest with lemon juice. In a liquid measuring cup, put 1 cup of powdered sugar and, with a fork, beat in 1 teaspoon of the lemon juice. Continue to beat it well, until the lumps are removed. Add the remaining juice. Adjust thickness by adding powder and/or juice. Place cake on a serving plate and pour icing over the top of the warm cake.
7
NOTE: I make the icing very thin to start and pour it over the cake, allowing it to run into the holes and soak well. Then, I thicken it to about gravy thickness and drizzle it over. The two icing textures make an appealing presentation.

**We find 3/4 C of sugar is sufficient, however you may bump it up to 1 full cup if it doesn't satisfy your sweet tooth.
