This Italian Lemon Cake is a decadent, deliciously moist cake that is perfect for breakfast, snack, or dessert! A dream cake with 1 tablespoon measurement. This is another of my most-loved Italian dessert that is very hard to miss!

Ingredients

2 large eggs

24 tbsp all-purpose flour (1 ½ c.) (195g.)

16 tbsp sugar (1 c.) (200g.)

1 tsp baking powder

zest one lemon

2 tbsp lemon juice

10 tbsp milk (½ c. + 2 tbsp) (150 g.)

10 tbsp vegetable oil (your choice I use corn or sunflower oil) (½ c. + 2 tbsp) (125 grams)

TOPPING:

2-3 tbsp Icing/powdered sugar for dusting finished cooled cake

How to make Tablespoon Italian Lemon Cake

Step 1: Prepare the oven. Preheat it to 350 degrees F or 180 degrees C.

Step 2: Grease an 8 or 9-inch cake pan or 20 to 23 cm, then dust with flour.

Step 3: Place the flour and baking powder in a small bowl. Mix well until combined.

Step 4: Beat the sugar and eggs in a large bowl on low to medium speed for about 5 minutes until light and fluffy.

Step 5: To the bowl, add the zest, juice, oil, and milk. Continue to beat until blended, then add the flour mixture and beat again on low speed until smooth.

Step 6: Into the prepared cake pan, pour the mixture and place in the preheated oven. Bake the cake for about 40 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the middle of the cake comes out clean. Remove the cake from the oven when done and allow it to cool in the pan. To a cake platter, transfer the cake.

Step 7: Before dusting the cake with powdered/icing sugar, allow it to cool fully first. Serve and enjoy!

Notes:

Make sure to beat the eggs and sugar only at low speed and never on high. Also, when adding the flour mix, beat on low.

You can also use a whisk or spatula instead of a mixer.
