Ingredients

  • 3

    cups all-purpose flour

  • 1

    teaspoon baking powder

  • ¼

    teaspoon salt

  • 1

    cup unsalted butter, softened

  • 2

    cups sugar

  • 3

    eggs

  • ½

    cup buttermilk

  • ½

    cup sour cream

  • 4

    tablespoons lemon juice

  • Zest of 2 lemons ( about 2 tablespoons)

  • 1

    teaspoon vanilla

Directions

Preheat oven to 300°F. Sift flour, baking powder, and salt and set aside. In another bowl, cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in eggs, one at a time. Mix in the sour cream, lemon juice, vanilla, ginger, and lemon zest. Mix half of the flour mixture into the butter mixture. Mix in the buttermilk and then add in the remaining flour mixture. Mix just until the flour disappears. Pour the cake batter into a bundt pan that has been generously sprayed with baking spray. Bake for 70 to 80 minutes or until a knife inserted in the center of the cake comes out clean. Remove the cake from the oven and allow to cool for 5 minutes. Turn the cake over on a cake platter. Spread the lemon glaze over the warm cake so that the glaze can soak into the cake. Let the cake cool completely and drizzle the lemon cream cheese frosting over the cake.
