  • Cake ingredients:

  • 1 cup


  • 1 cup


  • 4 each


  • 1 teaspoon

    Pure Lemon Extract

  • 2 cups


  • 2 teaspoons

    baking powder

  • dash of salt

  • Icing ingredients:

  • 1 cup

    vegetable shortening

  • 4 cups

    powdered sugar

  • 1 teaspoon

    Pure Lemon Extract

  • 1 Tablespoon

    meringue powder

  • ½ teaspoon

    kosher salt

  • 5-6 teaspoon



Bring the butter to room temperature. Cream together with the sugar. Mix on low until lightly fluffy. Add the eggs one at a time, mixing after each addition.

Sift together the flour, baking powder and salt. Slowly add into the wet ingredients. Mix on low for about five minutes. Add the lemon extract and scrape down the sides of the bowl, mixing again until all incorporated.

Line a 9” round baking dish with parchment paper. Pour in the batter and bake at 350 degrees for 40-50 minutes or until a cake tester comes out of the center clean.

Cool completely before icing.

Combine the icing ingredients together on low until light and creamy. Spread one thin layer of the icing on the cake and let it set for about five minutes. Add a second thicker layer of frosting on top of the first. Chill lightly before serving.

Goes wonderfully with the fresh raspberry ice cream!
