A white cake with lemon glaze. Alice got to lick the batter bowl.
SIMPLE WHITE CAKE
1 cup sugar
1/2 cup butter
1 Tbsp vanilla extract
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 3/4 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
2/3 cup milk
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease and flour a 9x9 inch pan.
In a medium bowl, cream together the sugar and butter. Beat in the eggs, one at a time, then stir in the vanilla. Combine flour and baking powder, add to the creamed mixture and mix well. Finally stir in the milk until batter is smooth. Pour or spoon batter into the prepared pan.
Bake for 30 to 40 minutes in the preheated oven. Cake is done when it springs back to the touch.
combine 1/4 cup softened butter, 1/4 cup softened (room temp) cream cheese, juice and zest of 1/2 lemon. Add enough icing sugar to make a nice smooth, not-too-thick consistency. Pour over the still-warm cake.
