Baking Frenzy - Lemon Butter Cake

The last cake of my baking frenzy is a lemon butter cake. What can I say about this lemon butter cake, I didn't expect it to taste so good ! The tangy taste of lemon went well with the richness of the butter cake, and gave it a nice refreshing taste. It is indeed a match in heaven. For all those who love eating butter cakes, you must try this recipe, and enjoy the cake with a cup of earl grey tea. :)
