Lemon Cake from @TinaKashian1

Hello from TINA KASHIAN! I love chocolate, but I also enjoy desserts with lemon. Lemon meringue pie, lemon bars, lemon pound cake, and lemon cookies. I recently found a recipe for a lemon cake that is perfect for dessert or in the morning with my cup of tea. I hope you like this one as well.


Ingredients:

½ pound butter

3 cups granulated sugar

5 egg yolks, beaten

4 cups flour

1 cup milk

Juice of one lemon

Grated rind of one lemon

½ teaspoon baking soda

5 egg whites, stiffly beaten

Directions:

Preheat oven to 325 degrees F. Cream the butter, adding the sugar gradually, until light and fluffy. Add the remaining ingredients, except the egg whites and confectioners’ sugar. Mix until well blended. 


Stiffly beat the egg whites until frothy. I used my electric mixer.

Fold in the beaten egg whites.

 


Divide the batter between a two 8x8 pans.

 


 Bake for one hour or until an inserted toothpick in the center of the cake comes out clean.
