Easy Lemon Corn Cake Recipe

Easy Lemon Corn Cake Recipe

 

Here is an easy lemon corn cake recipe which is a great spring or summer time dessert!

I recently finished reading book 3 in the Striking a Match book series by Tracie Peterson.  Books 1 & 2 were great and I’ll honestly be sad when I finish the series.  Tracie Peterson is one of my favorite authors of clean romance novels that are usually set in a historical time period.

At the end of book 2, Hearts Aglow, there is a recipe for one of the desserts that was mentioned in the book – Lemon Corn Cake.  It sounded so super yummy to me that I just had to try it and share it with you!

Ingredients needed for Lemon Corn Cake Recipe:

1 cup yellow cornmeal

2 cups all-purpose flour

2 tsp. baking powder

1/2 tsp baking soda

1/4 tsp salt

1 cup butter, softened

1 3/4 cups sugar

1 tbsp grated lemon zest

1/4 cup lemon juice

4 eggs

1 cup buttermilk

Glaze

1 cup powdered sugar

1/4 cup lemon juice

As you can see by the ingredients, this is not a calorie friendly, low dairy, gluten free recipe.  This is just a make-from-scratch, high in sugar and fat, delicious lemon corn dessert cake that is worth every bite!

Instructions:

Heat oven to 325°F.  Grease and flour a 9X13 or Bundt cake pan.

  1.  Sift together flour, cornmeal, baking powder, soda, and salt.  Set aside.
  2. In a separate bowl, beat butter and sugar until creamy

3.  Zest your lemon until you get 1 tablespoon.  I have this Chef Essentialz zester that is very sharp – be careful not to zest your own skin!

Add that to your creamed butter and sugar.
