Directions

Preheat oven to 350 degrees and spray 2 9" round cake pans with Pam. Whisk butter, sugar and lemon zest with mixer until light and fluffy. In a separate bowl mix together dry ingredients; set aside. With mixer on low speed, add the eggs, one at a time, mixing well after each addition. With the mixer still running add lemon juice (it will look curdled but it's not). Add 1/3 of the dry ingredients and 1/2 cup of buttermilk. Then stop and scrape the bowl. Repeat, adding another 1/3 of the dry ingredients and the remaining 1/2 cup buttermilk. Mix, stop and scrape. Add the remaining dry ingredients until completely combined and the batter is light and fluffy. Divide the batter evenly between the 2 pans. Bake for 25-30 minutes at 350 degrees. Let the cake cool for 15 minutes, remove from pans and let cool completely. While cake is cooling, mix strawberry buttercream frosting. Combine the butter with powdered sugar in a large bowl of mixer. Mix at medium speed until pale and fluffy, about 3 minutes. Add the milk and strawberries and mix on high speed until the frosting is very fluffy and pale pink in color with flecks of strawberries. Invert one of the cakes onto a cake plate, generously spread with frosting and top with strawberry slices. Repeat with remaining layer of cake and frosting. Frost the sides of the cake. Place in refrigerator for about 30 minutes to allow the frosting to set. Serve at room temperature.
