    Default Lemon-Cornmeal Cake

    Serves 20
    Active Time: 25 minutes
    Total Time: 1 hour 30 minutes

    Baking spray (cooking spray with flour)
    2 1⁄2 cups all-purpose flour
    1⁄2 cup yellow cornmeal
    2 tsp baking powder
    1⁄2 tsp each baking soda and salt
    2 sticks (1 cup) unsalted butter, softened
    1 3⁄4 cups sugar
    1 Tbsp grated lemon zest
    1⁄4 cup lemon juice
    4 large eggs
    1 cup buttermilk or plain yogurt, stirred to loosen
    Sugar Glaze
    1 cup sugar
    1⁄3 cup lemon juice

    1. Heat oven to 325°F. You’ll need a 10-cup decorative tube pan or a 12-cup Bundt pan coated with baking spray. In medium bowl, whisk together flour, cornmeal, baking powder and soda, and salt.
    2. In a large bowl beat butter, sugar, lemon zest and juice with mixer on medium speed until light and fluffy. Beat in the eggs one at a time until blended. With mixer on low, alternately beat in flour mixture and buttermilk until batter is smooth. Scrape into prepared pan; level top with spatula.
    3. Bake 55 to 65 minutes until a wooden pick inserted in cake comes out clean. Cool cake in pan on wire rack 5 minutes.
    4. Meanwhile, make the sugar glaze: Whisk glaze ingredients in a small bowl just until combined (sugar will not be totally dissolved). Invert cake from pan onto rack; place rack over a baking sheet. Brush glaze all over hot cake until absorbed (sugar crystals will be evident). Cool completely. Transfer cake to a serving plate and cover. Let cake rest several hours, or overnight, before serving. Store cake covered at room temperature up to 4 days. Cut into thin slices to serve.
    Tip: Use lime zest and juice for a zesty alternative.
