• 4 sticks real butter
  • 4 cups sugar
  • 9 eggs
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • 2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
  • 4 cups cake flour

Cream together butter (softened to room temperature) with sugar using a heavy-duty electric mixer.  Add whole eggs (also warmed to room temperature) one at a time and with the mixer running continuously at medium speed, add lemon juice and vanilla.  Finally, add sifted flour a little bit at a time.

Grease and flour a 10-inch tube pan and pour the thoroughly mixed batter into it.  Preheat oven to 325 degrees F and bake for 1 ½ – 2 hours, or until a straw test shows that it is done.  Remove to a rack to cool a bit, then turn onto the rack.
