- 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.
