Step 2

Pour into a greased & floured 10-inch fluted tube pan. Bake at 325F for 75 to 90 min or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean.

Step 3

Cool for 10 min before removing from pan to a wire rack to cool completely. Garnish w/confectioners' sugar, strawberries & whipped cream if desired.

NOTE FROM ME: This makes a very lrg cake & I found out by accident. I wanted to make a sml cake & use a new baking form I'd rec'd as a gift, so I made a half recipe as you see in the pic I posted. It met my goal, but I made the cake again as a gift & made a 3/4 of the recipe version the 2nd time. It perfectly filled my baking form. Other baking forms may well have a larger volume capacity, so use your best judgment.

Delicious even with my changes. I chose this recipe to use up the rest of the package of cream cheese -- lower fat but only had 6 oz. I also skimmed a bit on the sugar, but again not by much - used about 2 1/2 cups of sugar. I also used anise extract instead of the lemon extract. Delicious cake! Thanks for sharing!
