The Best Damn Meyer Lemon Cake Recipe

kept byclassiclarkin
recipe bySaveur

This recipe accompanied Rita Williams's essay "A Giving Tree" (April 2008). We based this stalwart recipe on one from baking maven Maida Heatter, and we really do think it is the best damn Meyer lemon cake we've ever had. For the best results, use a light-colored metal loaf pan. A dark-colored loaf pan will cause the cake to over brown; while glass or Pyrex loaf pans do not conduct heat as well as metal.


1 tbsp. butter, plus 8 tbsp. melted
2 tbsp. fine dry bread crumbs
1/2 cup whole blanched almonds
1 1/2 cups flour
1 tsp. baking powder
3/4 tsp. fine salt
1 1/3 cups plus 2 tbsp. sugar
2 eggs
1/2 cup milk, at room temperature
2 tbsp. lemon extract
Zest and juice of 2 Meyer lemons
