  • 227 g butter, softened
  • 3 c sugar
  • 6 eggs
  • 5 T lemon juice
  • 1 T grated lemon peel
  • 1 t lemon extract
  • 3 c Flour (Plain)
  • 1/2 t baking soda
  • 1/4 t salt
  • 1.25 c sour cream


Grease and flour a 10" bundt pan.  Preheat oven to 350F.

In a large mixing bowl, cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy, about 5 minutes. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Stir in lemon juice, peel and extract. Combine the flour, baking soda and salt; add to the creamed mixture alternately with sour cream. Beat just until combined.

Pour into a greased and floured 10-in. fluted tube pan. Bake at 350 degrees F for 55-60 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean. Cool for 10 minutes before removing from pan to a wire rack to cool completely.
