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!

This lemon butter cake looks just plain delicious. Classic recipes stand the test of time, and in this case even find their way into Paula Dean's cookbook. I especially like the fresh fruit topping; thank you for sharing this well written recipe.
