    Directions:

    1. 1
      Cake:.
    2. 2
      Preheat oven to 400°F Butter a 9-inch round pan, line it with a circle of buttered parchment paper and then flour the pan.
    3. 3
      In a medium bowl, sift together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. In a mixer, cream the butter and sugar at medium-high speed for about 2 minutes until light and fluffy. Mix in the extracts and lemon zest, then beat in the egg. Working on low speed, add 1/3 of the flour mixture, then 1/2 the buttermilk mixture, then another 1/3 of the flour, the last of the buttermilk, then the last of the flour. Mix until just combined.
    4. 4
      Scrape the batter into the pan and smooth the top. Bake 20-25 minutes until a toothpick comes out clean. Cool in the pan for 10 minutes, then finish cooling on a rack. Cool to room temperature before frosting. If frosting the cake with mascarpone frosting, store the cake in the refrigerator.
    5. 5
      Frosting:.
    6. 6
      Beat cheese and cream together until smooth and creamy and slight peaks begin to form.
    7. 7
      Sift in the powdered sugar and zest and beat until smooth.
    8. 8
      Mix in the vanilla extract and spread on cooled cake.
    9. 9
      Hazelnut-Berry Version:
    10. 10
      Replace almond meal with hazelnut meal (hazelnuts ground into a fine powder), use vanilla extract instead of almond, use orange zest instead of lemon, and sprinkle the batter with 3/4 cup fresh mixed berries tossed with flour before baking.

      I made two of these and divided them to make a four-layer cake. I also used my own recipe for lemon mascarpone frosting. The cake didn't rise as much as I would have liked, and turned out just a tad bit dryer than I like but it paired wonderfully with lemon mascarpone...delish!
