Cream together 1 cup of sweet butter and 2 cups of sugar. Beat in 3 eggs, one at a time. The mixture should be light. Mix together 3 cups of flour, 1 teaspoon of baking powder, 1/4 teaspoon of salt, and incorporate this with the butter mixture, alternating between adding it and the cup of buttermilk. Add 3 tablespoons of lemon juice and the grated zest (peel) of lemon to your taste. Bake in a non-stick pan at 300 degrees for 50+ minutes. Test for doneness with a toothpick. The cake can later be glazed (after cooling) with a mixture of 1/4 cup of butter, 1-1/2 cups of powdered sugar and 3 tablespoons of lemon juice.
Feel free to garnish with curls of lemon rind and enjoy!
