D'Olier Birthday Cake

This birthday cake has been in the hubs family for years and years!  Served only on the special occasion of a family member's birthday, it has many fond memories attached to it for him.

When we were first married, this was the "I must make" cake for him ... I can tell you I have made this cake for many years now, but always only on the occasion of his birthday.  It really is an old-fashioned pound cake-type cake, that is easily made.


1 cup butter
1 ½ cup sugar
1 tsp. lemon extract (or lemon juice)
1 tsp. vanilla extract
5 eggs, separated
1/3 cup milk
2 1/4 cup flour
2 tsp. baking powder


Cream butter, beat in sugar. Add flavorings and egg yolks, beat until pale yellow; gradually beat in milk. 

Beat egg whites until light and fluffy. 

Blend flour and baking powder and add alternately with egg whites until blended.

Bake in 350 degree oven in greased tube pan or bundt pan 60 minutes.  Frost as desired.
