So good and so pretty. You can actually use any kind of icing on these layers. I have used my old-fashioned chocolate icing on these butter layers.

How to Make BEA'S LEMON BUTTER CAKE

Step-by-Step

  • 1Preheat oven to 375. Grease & flour three 8" cake pans or two 9" cake pans. I actually like using Wilton's Cake Release.
  • 2LAYERS: Cream butter & sugar. Add eggs one at a time, beating after each.
  • 3Alternate milk & flour to the creamed mixture until all milk & flour is used. Add lemon extract & mix well.
  • 4Bake at 375 for approximately 20 minutes or until layers test done. Turn out of pans after 10 minutes and let cool before icing the cake.
  • 5ICING: Cream butter & powdered sugar. (One box of powdered sugar equals 16 oz or 2 cups). Add lemon rind. Add lemon juice a little at a time, mixing well until you have the icing the right consistency to spread. Ice cooled layers.
  • 6Note: Sometimes I make two 9" layers. I have also cut these two layers in half to make 4 layers.
  • 7***SELF-RISING FLOUR SUBSTITUTE***
    2 cups all-purpose flour
    2 tsp baking powder
    2 tsp salt
    1/2 tsp baking soda
