I remember visiting my Aunt Sharon's as a child, she always made the best treats. My favorite is her homemade lemon cake. Talk about southern goodness, yummm (shhh… we’re actually from the midwest).
Sometimes she would serve it hot with a scoop of vanilla ice cream, other times she would leave a piece on the table with a cold glass of milk. It was good either way.
As a kid I watched her bake. She would let me help with the simple things like adding sugar or pouring the milk. My favorite part was putting it in the oven, because whatever was left on the spoon and bowl was mine:) That’s when I became a human dishwasher.
Over the years she shared many of her secrets with me, some were passed down from my grandma, others were freestyled. But it didn’t matter what she made, she had a knack for making everything good.
My aunt Sharon's homemade lemon cake is a very simple recipe… it’s moist and delicious, you’ll taste all the years of love in every bite. This brings back so many memories, and now I want to share her recipe with you.

The Ingredients you will need are:
Glazed Lemon Drippings
Preheat oven to 250 degrees.
To get started, mix 3 cups flour, 1 teaspoon salt, ½ teaspoon baking soda, ½ teaspoon baking powder, and 2 ½ cups granulated sugar in a large bowl.
Take your 1 cup OR 2 sticks of butter (easiest to mix at room temp), 4 eggs, 1 cup of milk, 1 teaspoon vanilla extract, ½ cup oil, and mix until creamy. Pour into your large bowl with flour base.
Mix with a blender or whisk until creamy (my aunt Sharon always used a whisk, blenders were too fancy)..
Pour mix into a rectangular or round cake pan.
Set your timer for 45-60 minutes.
While your cake is baking take your 2 cups of powdered sugar and 3 ½ teaspoons of freshly squeezed lemon (or lemon juice) and mix until light and creamy.
After 45 minutes or so check your cake by poking it with toothpick towards the middle. If your toothpick comes out dry, your cake is ready to be taken out.
Let cake sit for about 15 minutes.
Pour on your Glazed Lemon Dripping and Enjoy! 💁
