Notes

If using a Bundt pan, be sure to spray it well with pan release.  If using butter and flour to prepare the pan, make sure all areas of the pan are coated.  

Have all ingredients at room temperature.

Be careful to not overbake the cake.  A few crumbs on the toothpick are ok. If the toothpick inserted in the center has liquid on it, it’s not done.

To add additional lemon flavoring, zest a lemon and add the zest to the batter when adding the lemon and vanilla extracts.

Store wrapped cakes in the refrigerator or freezer for use later.

Let cake come to room temperature before eating.  Butter cakes taste best at room temperature.
