Makes 1 cake
2 large eggs
1 large egg yolk
200 grams / 3/4 cup plus 1 tablespoon sour cream
15 grams / 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
200 grams / 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
50 grams / 1/3 cup cake flour
250 grams / 1 1/3 cups sugar
7 grams / 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
3 grams / 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
3 grams / 1/2 teaspoon salt
Zest from 2 lemons
200 grams / 14 tablespoons unsalted butter
112 grams / 1/2 cup plus 1 tablespoon sugar
95 grams / 3 fluid ounces lemon juice
1. Preheat the oven to 350F. Grease a 10-cup Bundt pan with butter or shortening and dust with flour (Wondra flour works well), shaking out the excess.
2. In a bowl, whisk together the eggs, yolk, 1/4 cup of the sour cream, and vanilla.
3. In a stand mixer fitted with a paddle attachment, mix the flours, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Add the butter and remaining sour cream and mix on low speed until the ingredients are moistened. Increase the speed to medium and beat for 1 1/2 minutes until creamy. Add the egg mixture and mix for 30 seconds to incorporate.
4. Pour the batter into the prepared pan and use a spatula to smooth out the top. Bake for 50 minutes or until a wooden skewer inserted into the cake comes out clean. Meanwhile, make the lemon glaze.
5. To make the lemon glaze: In a saucepan over low heat, dissolve the sugar into the lemon juice. Bring to a simmer, whisk, remove from heat, and cover until needed.
6. Cool the cake for 10 minutes. Unmold the cake onto a 9-inch cardboard round or a serving plate. Brush a couple of layers of glaze over the cake. Once cool, you can serve the cake or wrap it and freeze for future use. The cake defrosts at room temperature in a few hours.
