❓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/
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
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
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.

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!
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.
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.
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.
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
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.
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!!!!
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.
Lemon has to be neck in neck with Chocolate cake which is my favorite Cake of them all.
But l must try this Cake it looks so Delightfully Delicious 🍲 l love Lemons in Cakes,.Cookies,.Pies,. Even Candy's... The Home Made Lemon Curds Too,. But l must try this and l will try this recipe..🍋
Thanks for a great cake recipe..🍋🍋
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
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.
