Hi! This is a recipe that Lana made in her camp cooking class over the summer.  She recently wanted to make it all by herself as a gift to some friends that we were visiting.  I took pics of her as she worked her way through the recipe and thought it would be fun to make a pictorial tutorial for you.  Smiley

Ingredients for the cake:
6 egg yolks
2 1/4 tsp vanilla extract
1T plus 1tsp baking powder
3/4 tsp salt
1 1/2 cups sugar
zest of 2 lemons
6oz (1 1/2 sticks) of butter
1 cup milk
1 1/2 cups flour

Ingredients for the vanilla buttercream:
8 oz (2 sticks) soft butter
8 oz confectioner's sugar (about 1 cup)
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
cooking spray

First gather all the ingredients!  Take a long drink. That was hard work!


Preheat oven to 350 degrees

add flour, baking powder and salt to a mixing bowl

combine sugar and lemon zest and mix into flour mixture

add butter and milk and mix

add egg yolks and vanilla extract

remember to scrape down the sides as you mix

pour into cupcake molds

bake for 15 minutes and move to wire rack to cool

prepare buttercream by mixing all those ingredients together, frost, and finally ENJOY!


The cake is nice and a bit denser than a boxed recipe.  The lemony scents are heavenly!!  Hope you give this a try!

Thanks ladies!  Lana is at that age where she wants to be independent.  Now if I could only get her to want to do her own laundry! Smiley

Looks like you guys had fun.  I wish the kids in my family enjoyed the baking thing - the closest I got was when my one niece wanted to help stir the brownie batter once, years ago... though they all enjoy what comes out of the oven later.

That is a very suspicious looking bottle she's chugging too Cheesy

Heehee, thanks Onyx!  Lana rarely gets soda and got 2 bottles as a special treat so I could help but snap a shot of her chugging.  Smiley

Thanks kjlutz!  I'll be sure to share your comments with Lana.  Smiley
