How to Make Luscious Lemon Cake

3189 ratings | 92021 views
This Lemon Cake Recipe is so luscious and fluffy. It’s the perfect lemon cake full of lemon flavor. __________­⬇️⬇️⬇️⬇️ CLICK FOR RECIPE ⬇️⬇️⬇️⬇️ ___________ PRINTABLE RECIPE: 🖨️ https://thestayathomechef.com/lemon-cake 🖨️ ❓Do I have to use buttermilk in this recipe? ❓ The buttermilk in this recipe interacts with the baking powder to create a fluffier cake. If you do not have buttermilk, you can easily make a buttermilk substitute. Check out substitues here: https://thestayathomechef.com/buttermilk-substitute/ 🍴🍴🍴🍴🍴🍴🍴🍴🍴 INGREDIENTS CAKE: 1 cup salted butter softened 1½ cups sugar 3 large eggs 1 1/2 cups buttermilk 1/4 cup lemon juice 2 teaspoons vanilla extract 1/2 teaspoon lemon extract 3½ cups flour 4 teaspoons of baking powder ½ teaspoon salt 1 tablespoon lemon zest LEMON FROSTING: 1½ cups softened butter 8 ounces cream cheese softened 2 tablespoons lemon juice 2 teaspoons vanilla extract 1/2 teaspoon lemon extract 6 cups powdered sugar INSTRUCTIONS 1. Grease three 9-inch pans. Line the bottom with parchment paper. Preheat an oven to 350 degrees F. 2. In a large mixing bowl, use a hand mixer to cream the butter and sugar together. 3. Use a fork to combine the eggs, buttermilk, lemon juice, vanilla extract, and lemon extract together in a bowl or 2 cup liquid measuring cup. Set aside. 4. In another mixing bowl stir together flour, baking powder, and salt. 5. Add ⅓ of the dry ingredients to the butter mixture and mix in until just combined. Add in half of the milk mixture and combine. Add in another ⅓ of the dry ingredients until combined followed by the remainder of the buttermilk mixture. Add in the remainder of the dry ingredients and mix with the hand mixer until just combined, using a rubber spatula to scrape the sides and bottom to make sure everything is mixed in. Gently fold in lemon zest. 6. Divide the batter among the three prepared pans. Bake at 350 for 25 to 30 minutes. Let sit in pans for 5 minutes and then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely before layering and frosting. 🍴🍴🍴🍴🍴🍴🍴🍴🍴 Thanks for watching!

I made this cake for Easter and let me tell you, it was a hit! 🔥 However, I put a little more lemon juice in my frosting, but it was delicious! 😋😋 TFS

+Chef Sunshine Love thank you that's helpful
Chef Sunshine Love (6 days ago)
Jamunah Anpalakan I followed measurements from the video. However, I add 1 extra egg yolk and add more lemon juice.
Jamunah Anpalakan (7 days ago)
Which measurements did you followed?
The Stay At Home Chef (27 days ago)
Glad it still turned out amazing! Hope you get to make it again (:
Debra Tosch (28 days ago)
I made this cake and it tastes great. The only problem I have is it came out very dense did I do something wrong?
The Stay At Home Chef (28 days ago)
There is a chance. But if it tastes good everything is good (:

I wish more people would make videos like you did. Precise and to the point without a lot of cutesy jibber jabber that has nothing to do but add time. Great video 👍🏻👍🏻. I just subscribed.

This is the worst lemon cake I have ever made! Made the mistake of going by the recipe posted! A very heavy flour taste! Not light and fluffy as posted! I did not watch the video, big mistake! I have baked for forty years now, just wastes 2 1/2 cups of butter , 3 1/2 cups flour ( that should of been a red flag) about five lemons, plus about 3hrs of my time. Do not make this cake! Mine is going in the trash!
The Stay At Home Chef (1 month ago)
My point is that it sounds like you were overly confident in your own baking skills and neglected to take the time to actually follow the recipe. So if yours didn't turn out well, it sounds a lot like user error. Tough to hear I know. But hey, we all make mistakes.
Lin Bin (1 month ago)
The Stay At Home Chef And your point is?
The Stay At Home Chef (1 month ago)
“I did not watch the video” Yup, that’d be your mistake right there. You do realize this is youtube right?
Margaret Blickenderfer (1 month ago)
Wow, this looks like my all time favorite cake! Can't wait to try it!

There is a lot of tunneling in your cake layers that batter is too dry you cant remove air bubbles. Come on now, and you say you are a home chef! That batter was too dry.

Why is it different in the reading and the video. I wanted to like and save. But now I'm confused.

I made this but substituted half the butter with oil and it was very moist and didn’t solidify and get hard as it needs to be refrigerated.

Can you leave out the lemon extract
Monica Johnson (3 months ago)
It tasted very doughy when I came out
Chef Sunshine Love (27 days ago)
Monica Johnson if you followed the recipe by her measurements ingredients that’s why your cake came out wrongggg! Her measurements in the video are different from the written recipe. I had to use my own measurements.
Marlee D (3 months ago)
That's because that's so much flour for that small about of butter. I can just look at that and can tell it's too dry. I've been making homemade cakes every since I was 12yrs old. I can just look at the batter and tell how it will taste.

Tharoun Adamu (4 months ago)
Hi stay at home Chef. Can you pls respond to concerns on the discrepancy between the video amounts and the written down amounts. I would also like to give this recipe a go. To everyone else: as a general rule, whenever I encounter recipes with such errors, and have to make before the author makes adjustments, I always go with what's said/written in the video
А можно на российском 🙏😭👍

autumnskies (4 months ago)
As mentioned by another comment, the measurements for the buttermilk in your video and the written recipe is different. Is it 1 1/2 cups of butter milk then? For the frosting, is it 1 cup or 1 1/2 cup softened butter? =[ Also for the frosting, is it 5 cups or 6 cups of powdered sugar? Thank you.
Chef Sunshine Love (27 days ago)
jessica kiefer I agree Jessica, I made this cake and it was a hit. I had to use the measurements from my other scratch cakes. It came out delicious. 😋
jessica kiefer (1 month ago)
autumnskies Since it doesn’t look like she replies to comments- I will answer you from a Southern Cook’s point of view.....She said this cake batter will be gloopy not runny...She used a 2 cup measuring cup to mix everything together so, I’d guess she used 1 cup of buttermilk....I’ve never used more than 1 cup of buttermilk in a cake so, I’m guessing there(My red velvet calls for 1cup buttermilk and so does my strawberry cake).....On the icing...It’s just cream cheese frosting with added lemon flavor(Any cookbook worth having will have a cream cheese frosting recipe) I use- 1cup butter, 1 cream cheese(both at room temp) and 6 cups of Powdered sugar. And whip it good. LOL. I don’t make my icing until the cake has cooled so, I don’t put that much plastic in the land fill off of one cake!!!! But, each to his own, right? Truthfully, this sounds like Paula Deen’s recipe...I have all her cookbooks and seem to remember this cake. I baked it for a bake sale.....Might want to look for Deen’s recipe to get the proper measurements. If you can’t find it let me know, I’ll search thru my cookbooks and post the recipe for you. Hope this helps!!!!

Sheikh Nafis Muhtade (4 months ago)
I followed the recipe TO THE T but still it didn’t taste lemon-y and it tasted really bad
The Stay At Home Chef (4 months ago)
I hate to break it to you, but if it tasted “really bad” then you definitely didn’t follow the recipe “to the t.” We all make mistakes. No shame in admitting it.
Lanie Frazier (4 months ago)
I'm a little concerned , the cake batter looked thick when you was putting it in cake pan..I've never seen it that way...I would like to try the recipe..can you give some input

It says 6 cups of sugar.... isn’t that 1200 grams seems off
Joe Pilling (5 months ago)
The Stay At Home Chef thank you. Is there any chance you could tell me what the grams conversion for butter and flour is in this mixture thank you
The Stay At Home Chef (5 months ago)
6 cups of Powder sugar for the frosting. Which is about 720 G
Bolden Fam (5 months ago)
Why butter and butter milk in this one vs oil in the others? I’m trying to understand how and why different ingredients work. I’m new to baking.

Always always put a can of water in the oven with the cake to get a really moist cake. She obviously ain't from the south. I'll add a Georgia twist to it
Chef Sunshine Love (27 days ago)
TeW33zy I’m from the south, TN. I never used a can of water in the oven to make my cakes moist. In fact I never heard of it. I have a technique I use that makes my cakes comes out moist every time. 😋
Sharon Woodard (2 months ago)
Well thanks for the water tip never tried it with cakes
Taria Hutchison (3 months ago)
It doesn’t work. Friend is from the south. She put the van of water with her cake and I didn’t. Mine was moist and hers was the same as mine. So, it didn’t make a difference because the water evaporates from the heat. I don’t know where the water evaporates to but it isn’t to the cake.
TeW33zy (3 months ago)
+Xiomara Nunez yep. My Aunty taught me that. I always wondered how her cakes were so soft.

Hi Rachel love this recipe and wanna try it out tomorrow, I just want to get the recipe right. In your video you said to use 1 1/2 cups of buttermilk and 1 1/4 cups is listed and for the frosting you said to use 1 cup butter but its listed 1 1/2 cups of butter and 5 cups of powdered sugar but again 6 cups are listed. Also in your comments someone asked about the cake flour and if they still have to use baking soda and salt but your ingredients listed have baking powder and you also said baking powder in your video, I just want to get this lovely cake recipe right and for mine to come out perfect as yours. Can you please let me know the correct measurements. Thank you

The Stay At Home Chef (6 months ago)
Just a suggestion for the future, don’t comment on women’s appearances on the internet, especially when it is to criticize. It’s considered quite rude. The world needs women who will lift each other up. You’ll get much further in life if you choose to lift other women up.
Amelia Robinson (6 months ago)
+The Stay At Home Chef nope just really look like u were wearing alot. Just taught I would tell u.. Am sorry if I offended you though

The Stay At Home Chef (6 months ago)
Yes, cake flour doesn't have baking soda and salt in it. I think you are thinking of self rising flour, but definitely don't use that.

I have made 4 different cakes of yours. They all come out so heavy. I don't know what I am doing wrong! Is it because we are in a different climate?
