Gather all ingredients listed😊
Preheat the oven to 350
Grease and flour your loaf pan
For 5 minutes cream together 1/2 a cup of butter or margarine and 1 cup of sugar
It should look something like this
On medium speed, one at a time blend in the two eggs This is my second one
It should look like this
Add the lemon zest and save those lemons!!!
In a separate bowl combine with a wooden spoon, 1 1/2 cups of flour, 1/4 teaspoon baking soda, 1/4 teaspoon of baking powder and 1/2 teaspoon of salt
Cut the lemon in half that we saved
And juice it!!!
Urgggg those seeds get them out!!!
You need 1/8 cup of lemon juice to start but you also need more for the glaze and 1/4 cup for another part
In another bowl, stir together 1/2 of 3/4 cup buttermilk, 1/8 cup lemon juice and 1/2 teaspoon of vinilla
Alternate your flour mixture and your liquid mixture into the batter, starting and ending with flour
After it's done takeout out and let it cool for about 10 mins
Get ready to make the glazes!!!
Add in 1/4 cup of lemon juice and 1/4 cup of sugar into a saucepan to make the simple syrup
Stir until the sugar dissolves my stove is on 5
We poked a few small holes to let the syrup drip through but it's your choice
In another bowl combine 1cup icing sugar and 1 3/4 tablespoon lemon juice to make the glaze
Once the cake has cooled down with the simple syrup over it, you can drizzle the glaze over it...my mom will do this since I have to go to bed but here is the cake:
