Lemon Buttermilk Pound Cake

I love citrus cakes and this PassionFruit Buttermilk Pound Cake was a huge hit in my family… Many tried the cake after I posted the recipe and I received a lot of compliments....since then I was thinking of making the Lemon flavor like in the original recipe from Deeba’s blog... Recently I tried that and we loved this very soft and yummy Lemon Cake....

Lemon Buttermilk Pound Cake
Recipe Source ~ Passion About Baking
1 1/2 cups plain flour
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 cup unsalted butter, room temperature
1 cup vanilla or plain sugar
2 eggs
100 ml buttermilk {or substitute recipe below}
1 tsp vanilla extract
Juice of 1 lemon (or 2 limes)
Zest of 1 lemon (or 2 limes)
To make buttermilk substitute at home:
Take 100 ml milk at room temp; add 1 tsp white vinegar. Let it stand 5-10 minutes. When it curdles, it’s ready.
  • Grease and flour the sides of a loaf pan or 8″ ring tin, or a 6″ round tin. Line the bottom.
  • Preheat the oven to 170°C.
  • Sift the flour with the baking powder, baking soda and salt. Reserve.
  • Cream the butter and sugar. Beat in eggs one at a time, followed by the vanilla extract, lemon juice and zest.
  • With beater on low add the flour and buttermilk alternately in three lots.
  • Bake for 50-60 minutes till golden brown on top, and the tester comes out clean.
  • Meanwhile, make the glaze…

Lemon Glaze
Juice of 1 to 1 ½ lemons or 2 to 3 limes (as required)
1/2 cup powdered sugar
Make the glazing by mixing together lemon juice into the powdered sugar, stir till all lumps have dissolved. Add some more powdered sugar /juice, until you get a thick and flowing consistency. Pour the glaze evenly over the cooled cake, letting some drip over the sides. Wait for some time till it sets.
