Lemon Cake with Lemon Glaze – Bolo de Limao

This deliciously light lemon cake is a perfect weekend treat for your afternoon tea.
Some days when I’m in a hurry I take a short cut by making a box of Lemon Cake mix, then top with my lemon glaze. It’s that easy.


2 and 1/2 cups flour

3 eggs

1 and 1/2 teaspoon baking powder

1/2 teaspoon salt

1 and 1/4 sticks softened butter

3/4 cups milk

1 and 1/2 cups sugar

1 lemon (zested and juiced)

1 cup confectioners sugar

2 teaspoons milk


Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

Beat eggs with sugar until lemony. Beat in milk.

Mix flour, salt, baking powder, lemon zest and butter. Add into egg mix and beat until smooth.

Grease a bundt pan or loaf pan. Pour in batter. Cook for 1 hour or until toothpick comes out clean.

Mix confectioners’ sugar with 2 teaspoons of milk and lemon juice. Mix until smooth and creamy.

Add more milk or sugar if needed. Spoon glaze over cooled cake.
