Lemon Butter Cake as requested by Guests from The Brenham House

Lemon Butter Cake
as served at The Brenham House Bed and Breakfast

This recipe is very easy.  I got it out of an old cookbook from my collection and I have seen it recently from a Paula Deen cookbook.  Some of the best recipes have been around for quite sometime!
Lemon cake mix
1 egg
1 stick of butter, melted
Mix together and it makes a cookie dough.  Press down in a 9x13 baking dish.
1- 8 oz. softened package of cream cheese
2 eggs
 1 tsp. vanilla
1/4 c. lemon juice
one lemon zest
1 tsp. lemon extract
2 cups powdered sugar
1 stick of butter, melted
Mix together until creamy and pour on top of your dough.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Bake for 40-50 minutes ( I bake for 50 minutes)
Let cool and cut to serve.  I top with fresh fruit or a little fresh cream.

Hope you enjoy and remember us at The Brenham House Bed and Breakfast!
