  • ▢1-⅓ cups cake flour
  • ▢½ cup all-purpose flour
  • ▢1-½ teaspoons baking powder
  • ▢¼ teaspoon salt
  • ▢1 cup butter, softened
  • ▢¾ cup sugar, plus more for sprinkling on top
  • ▢3 large eggs, at room temperature
  • ▢Grated zest and juice of 1 lemon


  • Position an oven rack in the center of the oven and preheat the oven to 350F degrees.
  • Grease a 9 x 5-inch loaf pan and then line it with parchment or wax paper.
  • In a medium bowl, whisk together the cake flour, all-purpose flour, baking powder and salt.
  • In a large bowl, cream together the butter and ¾ cup sugar with an electric mixer, several minutes, until it gets light and fluffy.
  • Scrape down the sides of the bowl with a rubber spatula. Beat in the lemon zest.
  • Add the eggs, one at a time along with a tablespoon of flour mixture for each, allowing each egg to be fully incorporated into the batter before adding the next.
  • Gently mix in the remaining flour, just until blended. And then stir in the lemon juice. (Don’t over mix as it will toughen the cake.)
  • Scrape the batter evenly into the prepared pan. Sprinkle with 1 to 2 tablespoons sugar.
  • Bake for 50 to 60 minutes, or until a cake tester inserted in the center comes out clean.
  • Remove from the pan and place the pan on a wire rack to cool completely.
  • Gently remove the cake from the pan and cut into 12 slices.
