  • Icing
  • 1 ½ cups icing sugar, sifted

  2. In a bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Set aside.
  3. In another bowl, cream the butter, sugar, and lemon zest with an electric mixer. Add the eggs, one at a time, and beat until smooth. At low speed, add the dry ingredients alternately with the lemon juice and buttermilk.
  4. Pour into the prepared pan and bake for about 45 minutes or until a cake tester inserted in the centre of the cake comes out clean. Allow cake to cool on a wire rack.
