Best lemon cake recipe ever!

Last weekend I made one of my favorite recipes for a simple, cheap and really easy cake recipe. Every time I make this I remember how much I love it (and the rest of my family). The cake is SUPER moist and its the perfect combination of sweet with a bit of sour from the lemon. The recipe is from emeals and her it is...

Pantry Lemon Cake with Lemon Buttercream Frosting: (recipe website)
1 c butter, softened
2 c sugar
4 eggs
1 T lemon zest
¼ c lemon juice
1 t vanilla extract
2 1/3 c all-purpose flour
2 ½ t baking powder
¼ t salt
1 c buttermilk
1 c butter, softened
2 T lemon zest
¼ c lemon juice
2 T milk
5 c powdered sugar
Preheat oven to 350˚. Spray a 13 x 9 baking dish with nonstick baking spray. Coat with flour. Beat butter and sugar with a mixer til creamy. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well. Beat in lemon zest, lemon juice and vanilla. Combine flour, baking powder and salt. Gradually add to butter mixture, alternately with buttermilk, beating just until combined. Spoon into prepared pan. Bake for 35 – 45 min, or until a wooden pick inserted in center of cake comes out clean. Cool in pan 10 min. Turn cake upside down on a rectangular serving tray. Cool and spread frosting over top and sides of cake.
Frosting: Beat butter, lemon zest, lemon juice and milk with a mixer until creamy. Gradually beat in powdered sugar til smooth.

The yellow on the top is food coloring not cheese! Haha    
I hope you love this recipe as much as I do and have fun making it for your next party, baby shower, birthday or just to eat. 

PS: Sunday I am starting a special series that I am going to do every other Sunday which I am really excited about!
