High-Ratio Lemon-Buttermilk Pound Cake

Makes one 10-inch Bundt cake, about 16 servings

“After you bake this cake, you soak it with a lemon and vanilla syrup that
adds just the right note of tartness and moisture. See the variations at
the end of the recipe for a sprightly orange or lemon-lime version. Many
thanks to my friend Gary Peese of Austin, Texas, for this recipe.”

Cake batter
2 1/2 cups bleached all-purpose flour
(spoon flour into dry-measure cup and level off)
2 cups sugar
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 pound (2 sticks) unsalted
butter, softened
4 large eggs, at room temperature
3 large egg yolks
1/2 cup buttermilk
1 tablespoon grated lemon zest
1 tablespoon strained fresh lemon juice
1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Lemon syrup
1/2 cup water
1/2 cup sugar
1/3 cup fresh lemon juice, strained
2 teaspoons vanilla extract

One 12-cup Bundt pan, buttered and floured

1. Position a rack in the lower third of the oven and preheat to 325 degrees.
2. Place the flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt in the bowl of a heavy-duty mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, add the butter, and beat on the lowest speed for about 2 minutes, or until the ingredients are well combined.
3. Meanwhile, whisk all the remaining batter ingredients [eggs, egg yolks, buttermilk. lemon zest, lemon juice and vanilla] together in a mixing bowl until well combined.
4. Increase the mixer speed to medium, add one-third of the liquid and mix for 2 minutes. Stop the mixer and scrape down the bowl and beater. Add another third of the liquid, beat for 2 minutes, and scrape again. Finally, add the remaining liquid and beat and scrape as before.
5. Use a large rubber spatula to give the batter a final vigorous stir, then scrape it into the prepared pan and smooth the top.
6. Bake for about 1 hour, or until a toothpick inserted into the cake halfway between the side of the pan and the central tube emerges clean.
7. Cool the cake in the pan on a rack for 10 minutes, then invert onto the rack to finish cooling.

8. To make the syrup, bring the water and sugar to a boil in a small saucepan. Remove from the heat and stir in the lemon juice and vanilla. Brush the hot syrup evenly all over the cake. Gradually brush until it is
all absorbed.

Storage  Wrap the cake in plastic wrap and then foil to ensure it doesn’t
dry out, and serve within a few days. For longer storage, wrap and freeze;
defrost loosely covered at room temperature.


Lemon Sour Cream or Yogurt Pound Cake

Substitute sour cream or plain yogurt for the buttermilk.


Orange Buttermilk Pound Cake

Substitute orange zest and juice for the lemon and orange extract for the vanilla extract in the batter. Make the syrup with 1/3 cup strained fresh orange juice and 2 tablespoons lemon juice. This cake can also be made
with sour cream or yogurt as above.


Lemon-Lime Buttermilk Pound Cake

Substitute lime juice for the lemon juice in the batter. Use half lemon and
half lime juice for the syrup. This cake can also be made with sour cream
or yogurt as above.
