INGREDIENTS

    For the cake:

    • 3/4 cup (170g) Butter, softened
    • 4 Eggs
    • 1 cup (200g) Sugar
    • 3 tablespoons Lemon juice
    • 2 tablespoons Lemon zest
    • 1¾ cups (220g) All-purpose flour
    • 1/2 teaspoon Salt
    • 1½ teaspoons Baking powder
    • 2/3 cup (160g) Yogurt/sour cream
    • 1 teaspoon Vanilla extract

    For the glaze:

    • 1 cup (120g) Powdered sugar
    • 3 tablespoons Lemon juice
DIRECTIONS

  1. Preheat oven to 325ºF (163ºC). Line a 9X5-inch (23X12cm) loaf pan with parchment paper. Set aside.
  2. Make the cake: In a bowl, sift flour, baking powder and salt. Set aside.
  3. In a large bowl cream butter, sugar and lemon zest, until light and pale. Add eggs, one at the time, beating to combine after each addition. Add 1/2 of the flour mixture and stir just until combined. Add yogurt/sour cream, lemon juice, vanilla extract and stir until combined. Add the remaining flour and stir until combined.
  4. Pour the batter into prepared pan and bake for 50-60 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center of the cake comes out clean.
  5. Make the glaze: in a bowl, whisk powdered sugar and lemon juice until smooth. If the glze is too thick add more lemon juice, if the glaze is too thin, add more powdered sugar.
  6. When the cake is baked, pour the glaze over the cake and allow to cool slightly before serving.
