Instructions
  1. Preheat the oven to 350F degrees. Butter a 6-cup loaf pan and line it with parchment paper. In a medium bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, and salt.
  2. In a mixer fitted with a whisk attachment, cream the butter. Add 1 cup of the sugar and mix. With the mixer running at low speed, add the eggs one at a time. Add the vanilla.
  3. Working in alternating batches, and mixing after each addition, add the dry ingredients and 1/4 cup of the lemon juice and zest to the butter mixture. Mix until just smooth.
  4. Pour into the prepared pan and bake until raised in the center and a tester inserted into the center comes out dry and almost clean, 65 to 75 minutes.
  5. When the cake is done, let cool in the pan 15 minutes (it will still be warm). Run a knife around the sides of the pan. Set a wire rack on a sheet pan with sides.
Lemon glaze
  1. When the cake is cool, carefully(large spatula) transfer to a serving platter. Combine the confectioners' sugar, lemon juice, lemon zest and melted butter in a medium bowl, mixing with a fork until smooth. Add more confectioners' sugar or lemon juice as necessary to make a thick but pourable glaze(like syrup). Spoon the glaze over the top of the cake.

Flourless chocolate cookies
A while back I started fooling around with confectioners sugar vs granulated sugar. I made a few batches of cookies using only confectioners sugar, some were pretty good others not so much. In my research I came across Megan Phelan. Megan is a Sullivan Street alumni who I believe is the architect of these flourless chocolate cookies. The batter is quick and easy the results are fantastic.

  1. Preheat over to 375F line baking sheet with parchment paper. Mix sugar, cocoa powder and salt in a small bowl. Whisk egg whites and vanilla together.
  2. Make a well in the center of the dry ingredients and pour in egg whites. Stir mixture with a fork until it just begins to come together. Add chocolate chips and stir until combined. The dough will be sticky and very dark.
  3. Using a tablespoon, pack batter by pressing and dragging spoon against inside of bowl to make sure the dough is tight and compact. Place packed dough on parchment lined cookie sheet 3-inches apart and bake for 12 minutes or tops are glossy and set. Let cookies rest at least 15 minutes on a wire rack. Repeat with remaining dough.
  4. Makes 10-12 cookies
