  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F, with the oven rack in the center of the oven.
  • Grease with butter, or spray with a nonstick vegetable spray, a 8.5 inch loaf pan.
  • In a separate bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, salt, and lemon zest.
  • In the bowl of your electric stand mixer or with a hand mixer, beat the butter and sugar until light and fluffy.
  • Now add the eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition.
  • Scrape down the sides of the bowl as needed.
  • Add the vanilla extracts.
  • Beat in half the flour mixture just until incorporated.
  • Add the tutti frutti and beat until incorporated.
  • Then beat in the milk and then the remaining flour mixture.
  • Scrape the batter into the prepared pan.
  • Bake for about 60 -70 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean. 
  • Remove from oven and let it cool on a wire rack for about 20 – 30 minutes.
  • Serve with a scoop of ice cream and enjoy it.

Hints:

  • While adding eggs the mixture looks scramble, but don’t worry after adding flour everything comes together.
  • If you find the cake is browning too much, cover with a piece of aluminum foil.
