Thanks to Shidah from dairimama.blogspot for sharing the awesome recipe. I added lemon juice and lemon zest and guess what???? taste like cheesecake. I love this cake...and in fact you can add in any variations you which the cake will not let you. I divided the cake into 2 and sandwich it with lemon goodness my son really thought that I made a cheesecake....if you don't believe me try will really make your day. I topped the cake with lemon royal icing..hemmmmmmmmmmm awesome!!!

Lemon Butter Cake - Adapted from

250g butter, softened

2/3 cup milk
3 tbsp lemon juice
Zest of 1 lemon
Lemon Curd as a fillings

Using an electric mixer, cream butter, caster sugar and vanilla in a medium bowl on medium-high speed until light and fluffy.

 Add eggs, 1 at a time, beating to combine. Add half the flour.Add lemon zest and lemon juice. Stir to combine. Add half the milk. Stir to combine. Repeat with remaining flour and milk.
Spread mixture into two  prepared pan. Bake for 1 hour or until a skewer inserted into the centre comes out clean. Stand in pan for 10 minutes. Turn out onto a wire rack to cool. Dust with icing sugar. Serve.

Spread with lemon curd and sandwich the two cake. Reading for decorating
