DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  • Butter, a 9 inch springform pan and then line the bottom of the pan with parchment paper. Set aside.
  • Cream the butter and sugar until light and fluffy and pale in color.
  • Add the eggs, one at a time, mixing well after each addition.
  • Beat in the vanilla extract and lemon zest.
  • Sift together the flour, baking powder and salt and then add to the batter along with the lemon juice.
  • Mix only until incorporated.
  • Pour the batter into the prepared pan, smoothing the top with a spatula.
  • Bake about 45 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
  • Place on a wire rack to cool, then gently remove the sides of the pan.
  • For the icing, combine the sifted confectioners' sugar with the 2 tablespoons lemon juice. Frost the top of the cake, allowing the icing to drip down the sides.
