Ingredients

To create this delectable cake, you'll need flour, sugar, butter, eggs, lemon zest, lemon juice, baking powder, and salt. Using fresh, high-quality ingredients is crucial for the best flavor.

Choosing the Right

Opt for organic lemons for a more vibrant and natural flavor. The zest and juice from these lemons will enhance the cake’s taste and aroma.

Preparing Lemon Zest

Carefully grate the lemon zest, avoiding the bitter white pith. The zest contains essential oils that add a fragrant and intense lemon flavor to the cake.

Creaming Butter

Beat the butter and sugar until light and fluffy. This step is essential for achieving a tender and airy cake, ensuring a smooth and creamy batter.

Incorporating Eggs

Add the eggs one at a time, mixing well after each addition. This helps to emulsify the batter, making it smooth and cohesive.

Mixing Dry Ingredients

Sift together the flour, baking powder, and salt. Gradually add the dry ingredients to the wet mixture, mixing until just combined to avoid overworking the batter.

Adding Lemon Flavor

Fold in the lemon zest and juice gently. This not only infuses the cake with lemon flavor but also adds moisture, resulting in a tender crumb.
