I like making lemon cakes in the spring.  I love the lemon flavor and enjoy making this once a year to reward myself for spring cleaning.



2 1/2 cup granulated sugar

1 cup butter, softened

1 teaspoon LEMON extract

5 large eggs

3 cups all-purpose flour

1 teaspoon baking powder

1 cup milk, I use skim


Heat oven to 350 degrees

grease a bundt cake pan with cooking spray, or with shortening and lightly flour

beat sugar, butter, vanilla and eggs in a large bowl or in a stand mixer until combined

mix flour and baking powder in a separate bowl

beat flour mixture into sugar mixture alternately with the milk on low speed, beat until smooth

pour mixture into bundt pan

bake 1 hour and 10 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean.

cool about 20 minutes, remove from pan and place on a wire rack to cool, about 2 hours

when completely cool, add glaze, recipe below


1/4 cup milk

1 teaspoon lemon extract

1 cup confectioner sugar, more if mix is too runny

mix until combined,  pour onto cooled cake
