1/2 cup plus 1 tablespoon unsalted butter
1 cup sugar

Lemon & Caraway Cake Recipe at
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Butter a 4 x 8 inch loaf pan and line it with parchment or waxed (greaseproof) paper.

Cream the butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Add the egg yolks, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Sift together the flour and baking powder and fold into the mixture alternately with the milk, lemon zest, caraway seeds, and vanilla. Beat the egg whites until stiff, then fold into the mixture.

Pour the mixture into the prepared pan. Bake for 1 1/4 hours, or until a skewer inserted in the middle of the cake comes out clean. Allow the cake to cool in the pan on a rack for 5 minutes before turning out onto a wire rack. Serve warm or cold.

My favorite baking experience
I am not a baker, cook mainly main meals. I was asked to bake goodies for a birthday party on St. Patrick's day. I did the usual chocolate cupcakes with a mix, added mint extract and decorated them beautifully. But I wanted a real Irish recipe since it was a "tea party". I found this recipe on your site. I knew it was a winner just by the smell when it was baking! It was the hit of the party! I am so thankful I ventured out of my comfort zone...I will make this recipe many times to come YES!
