Classic Refreshing Moist Lemon Cake

This is by far one of my favorite Classical Recipes in the world.... A simple Classic Refreshing Lemon Cake..

You can have this day or night, hot or cold, feeling sick or tired you name it, and this cake will perk you up.. Bringing back old memories when you were a child, and even a plain lemon cake would mean the world to you!

 I use a simple recipe that calls for simple pantry ingredients, but my lemons are always fresh straight from my tree:) The lemon juice is so fresh giving the cake a refreshing lemony taste... I also use organic eggs to give it the best flavor and the nice lemony yellow color.. Last but not least this recipe calls for buttermilk.. to give it that soft moist texture and taste.. "Don't have buttermilk"??? don't stress.. add 2 teaspoons of lemon juice, or 2 teaspoons of vinegar to 1 cup of milk.. and you will have instant sour milk within minutes, and it works just as well as buttermilk... SO here we go Naz's Kitchen Fiesta Buddies......


Note: watch the cake, and your oven closely while baking.. so you don't over bake the cake...
