OT lemon cakes

While thinking about birthday's today I was remembering that
my grandma always made lemon birthday cakes. They were sort
of a heavy butter type cake with nuts and raisins. There is
no known recipe but I would like to try to get close to hers.
Anyone have a cake recipe that sounds like it might work?

I have a huge collection of cook books... friends tell me that I'll have to have a uhaul just for the cook books... but I'm not coming up with much... I found a lemon sponge cake that just doesn't sound right.... but I did come across a lemon fruit cake that has a pound of butter 6 eggs candied cherries, cadieed pineapple, white raisins and pecan halves.... if that sounds like it might be close, let me konw and I'll shoot you the recipe or post it..... but somehow... I'm thinking you had a call into the fat police just reading those ingredients I'll keep looking....

Taria, I probably have one in my collection too - but none I could promise you is great that includes nuts and raisins. Just a suggestion though. Whatever recipe you choose, for goodness' sake use real lemons. I'm not a maniac about doing everything the hard way but freshly-squeezed lemon juice is the star ingredient in the lemon cake I love to bake. Alton Brown even put a lemon squeeze in his chicken soup tonight. I love that guy. Polly

i'll sure take your word on that, S. i had no idea one could even buy it in that quantity unless you went to a catering supply type place. so what zest/juice would you think is right as a substitute? i'm chock a block with real lemons so i wont be even trying to find that much extract here. :)) cheers, jeanne
