INGREDIENTS

* 1 cup butter (no substitutes), softened
* 3 cups sugar
* 6 eggs
* 5 tablespoons lemon juice
* 1 tablespoon grated lemon peel
* 1 teaspoon lemon extract
* 3 cups all-purpose flour
* 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
* 1/4 teaspoon salt
* 1 1/4 cups sour cream
* ICING:
* 1/4 cup sour cream
* 2 tablespoons butter, softened
* 2 1/2 cups confectioners’ sugar
* 3 tablespoons lemon juice
* 2 teaspoons grated lemon peel

DIRECTIONS

1. In a large mixing bowl, cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy, about 5 minutes. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Stir in lemon juice, peel and extract. Combine the flour, baking soda and salt; add to the creamed mixture alternately with sour cream. Beat just until combined.
2. Pour into a greased and floured 10-in. fluted tube pan. Bake at 350 degrees F for 55-60 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean. Cool for 10 minutes before removing from pan to a wire rack to cool completely.
3. For icing, in a small mixing bowl, beat the sour cream and butter until blended. Gradually add confectioners’ sugar. Beat in lemon juice and peel. Drizzle over the cake. Store in the refrigerator.
