Lemon Cake of Cakes
Zoe wanted Lemon Cake for her 16th Birthday. S I X T E E N !
I should be so lucky that she wants a homemade cake. All of my so so attempts haven't put her off. She actually prefers them to store bought mixes so that a win.
I used 3 6-inch pans. I couldn't find a recipe that I thought would make the right amount of batter so I created this one myself.
0.5 cup whole milk yogurt
1.5 cup sugar
2 cups flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
0.50 teaspoon salt
zest of 1 lemon
0.25 cup fresh lemon juice
0.50 cup oil
Parchment line 3 6-inch pans, or 2 9-inch pans. Spray with oil. Preheat oven 350 degrees
In a bowl combine the yogurt, sugar, and eggs. Mix until the sugar is dissolved. Combine the flour, soda, and salt. Add half to the sugar. Combine the juice and oil together, put half into the batter. Add the remaining flour, mix, ad the last of the oil and lemon juice. Mix about 2 minutes longer on high speed.
Pour into pans and bake 35-40 minutes until a tester inserted comes out clean. Cool and frost.
Lemon cake's alright.
