Butter a 9″ x 4 1/4″ Tube or Bundt Pan and dust lightly with flour or fine,
dry bread crumbs and set aside. Pre-heat the oven to 350-F degrees. To
prepare cake batter mix together the sifted flour, baking powder and salt,
then set aside. In a large mixing bowl, beat butter until soft. Add the
sugar and continue to beat until well mixed. Beat in eggs, one at a time,
scraping the bowl as necessary. Add dry ingredients and continue to mix,
while slowly adding the milk to the batter.

When completely mixed, stir in the lemon rind. Turn the batter gently into
the prepared pan and level the pan by rotating it quickly. Bake for 1 hour
and 5-10 minutes, until cake tester comes out clean. Let the finished cake
stand in the pan for 5-minutes to cool, then cover with a baking rack and
turn cake upside down. Set rack over wax paper to prepare for icing.

To make the icing, mix the lemon juice with the sugar and brush all over
the top of the warm cake. The lemon cake will absorb the icing. Continue to
let the cake cool at least 2-3 hours and serve after lightly powdering the
surface with confectioners’ sugar.

Variation: Prepare icing with 1/2 cup Key Lime juice for a great lime
