Who doesn’t love Lemon Cake!! Today I am sharing the recipe I have used for years to make this family favorite. And since I keep seeing loaf cakes popping up everywhere from Starbucks to Pinterest, I decided to try my hand at making one. I usually make this in a Bundt pan, and to me it comes out of the oven a little lighter than a loaf pan. The density of the cake is thicker in the loaf, almost like a pound cake. The pan I used was the Perfect Meatloaf Pan, without the insert. It is a larger wider loaf pan, perfect for this kind of cake I think.
