2 cups sugar

3 eggs, room temperature

1/2 cup of sour cream

1/4 cup lemon juice

3/4 cup buttermilk

(you’ll need about 4-5 total lemons)

1/4 cup butter, room temperature

2 cups confectioners' sugar

2 to 3 tablespoons lemon juice

Oven Temperature:

Preheat oven to 350ºF

Bake Time:

60 - 75 minutes until a toothpick inserted in the center is dry

  1. Spray a bunt pan with cooking spray, set aside.
  2. In a bowl, sift flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt and set aside.
  3. Using a hand mixer or a stand mixer fitted with a paddle, cream butter and sugar in  a bowl until light and fluffy. Beat in eggs, one at a time until mixture is smooth.  Mix in the sour cream, lemon juice, vanilla, and lemon zest.
  4. Add half of the flour mixture into the butter mixture. Mix in the buttermilk and then add in the remaining flour mixture. Beat until the flour disappears and no more lumps.  Do not overmix. Pour the cake batter into a bundt and smooth the top.
  5. Bake until a wooden stick inserted in the center of the cake comes out clean.  Remove the cake from the oven and allow to cool for 5 minutes.
