READY IN: 1hr 20mins
SERVES: 12-16
YIELD: 1 cake




  • Preheat oven to 325 degrees.
  • Grease and flour a tube cake pan. The one I use has a removable bottom and a very large center hole.
  • Sift dry ingredients together.
  • Cream shortening and sugar. Add eggs one at a time. Mix until just incorporated.
  • Mix in dry ingredients until just incorporated.
  • Stir lemon juice and lemon extract into the buttermilk. Mix into cake batter just until incorporated.
  • Pour cake batter into the prepared tube cake pan, place pan on a half sheet covered with aluminum foil and bake for one hour.
  • While cake is cooking, mix together glaze ingredients.
  • When one hour is up, slowly pour glaze over cake and return cake to the oven for three more minutes.
  • Remove cake from oven and let sit for eight minutes. Then remove from pan.
  • Serve at room temperature. It's best prepared several hours or even a day ahead.
