Double-Coated Lemon Bundt Cake

cakes

----LEMON RIND INFUSION----
1 1/2 tablespoon lemon rind; freshly grated
2 teaspoon lemon extract
1 tablespoon lemon juice; freshly squeezed
----LEMON CAKE BATTER----
3 cup flour
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
12 tablespoon butter
5 tablespoon shortening
2 1/3 cup sugar; divided
4 large eggs; separated
1 cup buttermilk
1 pinch cream of tartar
1 lemon spooning glaze
1/2 cup lemon juice
6 tablespoon sugar
1 lemon topping
2 1/4 cup confectioner's sugar
5 tablespoon lemon juice
2 tablespoon unsalted butter; melted and cooled
1/4 teaspoon lemon extract

For the lemon rind infusion: Mix together the lemon rind, extract and
juice. Set aside for 15 minutes.

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Film the inside of a 10-inch bundt
pan
with nonstick cooking spray Set aside.

For the lemon cake batter: Sift together the flour, baking soda and
salt.
Cream the butter and shortening in the large bowl of an electric mixer
on
moderate speed for 5 minutes. Beat in 2 cups of the granulated sugar
in 3
portions, mixing on moderately high speed for 1 minute after each
portion
is added. Beat in the egg yolks and lemon rind infusion.

On low speed, alternately add the sifted ingredients in 3 additions
with
the buttermilk in 2 additions, beginning and ending with the sifted
mixture. Scrape down the sides of the mixing bowl frequently to keep
the
batter even textured. The batter will be thick. Set aside.

Beat the egg whites in a clean, dry bowl until frothy, add the cream
of
tartar and continue beating until soft peaks are formed. Sprinkle over
the
remaining 1/3 cup granulated sugar and continue beating until firm
(but
not stiff) peaks are formed. Stir 1/4 of the beaten egg whites into
the
batter, then fold in the remaining whites.

NOTE: Be sure to fold in the whites thoroughly enough so that all
large
clumps (any about the size of a whole walnut or larger) are
incorporated,
but be careful not to deflate the batter by overfolding the mixture;
stray
flecks of white can (and should) remain in the batter.

Pour and scrape the batter into the prepared bundt pan. Gently shake
the
pan (once or twice) from side to side to level the top. Bake the cake
in
the preheated oven for 55 minutes, or until risen and a wooden pick
inserted into the cake comes out clean. The baked cake will pull away
slightly from the sides of the pan. Let the cake stand in the pan on a
cooling rack for 5 to 6 minutes. Then turn the cake out onto another
cooling rack; set over a sheet of waxed paper (or aluminum foil).

Immediately but slowly spoon over the Lemon Spooning Glaze, taking
care to
soak the sides of the cake as well as the top. After about 20 minutes
(or
when the top of the cake is no longer moist to the touch), spoon over
the
Lemon Topping, letting it cascade from the top of the cake down the
sides.
Cool completely.

Technique note: It is important to wait until the glaze has set and
permeated the cake before pouring over the topping, otherwise the
topping
will appear to have separated and won't set properly.

LEMON SPOONING GLAZE (Makes a scant 3/4 cup) A light syrup, sweet and
tart, for dousing lemon cakes.

Combine the lemon juice and granulated sugar in a small nonreactive
(not
aluminum) saucepan. Cover and set over moderately low heat to dissolve
the
sugar completely, about 5 minutes. Uncover, bring just to the
beginning of
a boil and then simmer for 20 seconds. Pour into a bowl. NOTE This
spooning glaze can be used in two ways: warm over a warm or cool cake
(or
batch of muffins), or cool over a warm cake. (For maximum effect,
avoid
using the cool glaze on a cool cake.) If the glaze is made in advance
and
stored in the refrigerator, bring to room temperature before using
over a
warm or hot cake.

LEMON TOPPING (Makes a generous 1 1/4 cups) A sparkling lemon spread
to
crown loaf or bundt cakes, sweet yeast breads, tea biscuits and
muffins.

Place the confectioners' sugar, lemon juice, butter and lemon extract
in a
medium size mixing bowl. With a hand-held electric mixer, blend
together
the ingredients on low speed for 30 seconds, or until just combined.
Scrape down the sides of the mixing bowl once or twice to keep the
topping
smooth textured. Do not overbeat.

NOTE: The mixture should be slightly thick, but spoonable; you can
adjust
the texture by adding a few extra teaspoons of confectioners' sugar or
additional teaspoons of lemon juice, if necessary. If the
