Lemon Cake

This will make two loaves, it tastes as great the second or third day as it did the first. Try it with a bracing cup of coffee or tea about 3 in the afternoon. You can use it as a dessert with a compote of apples or pears or even fresh pineapple. Enjoy
first off heat oven to 350 325 for mine In bowl of electric mixer combine 5 large eggs,and 1-1/2 cups vanilla sugar til blended well. with the mixer on low speed slowly add in 3/4 cup creme fraiche or heavy cream, 2-1/4 cups a/p flour,1 tea. baking powder,7 Tab. melted unsalted butter cooled,1/2 cup fresh lemon juice and the zest of 4 lemons. make sure ingredients are in the order given. Beat til super smooth. Divide the bater into 2 loaf pans,. bake til golden about 60 min. Remove from oven and cool on rack unmold and cut loaves into thin slices.Store wrapped in plastic wrap for several days.

Use about 1/4 cup, when it starts getting thick, then move to adding it a tablespoon at a time. Stop when it's the consistency you like. Just like you would with making real mayo. Hope that helps!
