Kims Buttermilk Spice Cake

Cream shortening and brown sugar. I would do 1/4 cup shortening and 1/4 cup butter. Sift flour, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves, and allspice together.

Dorie Greenspan turns to Maida Heatter's lemon buttermilk cake time and time again. She explains: "This light, moist, lemony cake is genius for so many reasons: It’s powerfully puckery. It’s got both more fresh lemon juice and zest than you’d expect or normally see in a recipe, and the flavor holds up under heat." GET THE RECIPE ►► f52.co/2WeW70j
