Lemonade Cake

It is Spring! Spring brings lemons and I love lemons! I found this recipe on myrecipes.com and I had to make it today! Luckily I had all the ingredients on hand so I set to work! Mmm mmm good!

6 Tbsp soft butter
1 Tbsp grated lemon rind
3 Tbsp thawed lemonade concentrate
2 tsp vanilla
2 large eggs
2 egg whites
2 c flour
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp baking soda
1 tsp baking powder
1 1/4 c buttermilk

2 Tbsp soft butter
2 tsp grated lemon rind
2 tsp thawed lemonade concentrate
1/2 tsp vanilla
8 ounces cream cheese, room temp
3 1/2 c powdered sugar

Preheat oven to 350 degrees

Cake~ place the 1st 5 ingredients in a bowl and beat well for about 5 minutes. Add the eggs and egg whites 1 at a time and blend well after each.  Combine the flour, baking soda, salt and baking powder in a bowl and whisk together.  Add the buttermilk and flour alternately, beginning and ending with flour. Beat well after addition.  Pour the batter into 2 9 in round cake pans that have been sprayed with cooking spray. Bake for 20 minutes and cool in pans for 10 min on a wire rack.  Turn the cakes out of the pans and cool on wire rack.

Frosting~Add the 1st 5 ingredients and beat on high until fluffy.  ADd the powdered sugar and beat on low until just mixed. Chill for 1 hour.  Then assemble the cake with 12 c frosting in between the layers and the rest over the top and sides of the cake! YUM! Enjoy~
