This cake never lasts long at family gatherings. Slices taste terrific whether served alone or topped with fresh fruit. —Shirley Tincher, Zanesville, Ohio

  • 1 cup butter, softened
  • 3 cups sugar
  • 6 large eggs, room temperature
  • 1 teaspoon lemon extract
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup heavy whipping cream
  • Sliced fresh fruit, optional


  1. Preheat oven to 325°. Grease and flour two 9x5-in. loaf pans. In a large bowl, cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy, 5-7 minutes. Add eggs, 1 at a time, beating well after each addition. Beat in extracts. Add flour alternately with cream, beating just until blended. Pour into prepared pans.
  2. Bake until a toothpick inserted in center comes out clean, 80-85 minutes. Cool 10 minutes before removing from pans to wire racks to cool completely. Serve with fresh fruit if desired.
