Step 1

Preheat oven to 350° with a rack in the middle. Grease an 8×2″ round cake pan with unsalted butter, then dust with all-purpose flour, tapping out excess. (Alternatively, butter cake pan, then line the bottom with a parchment paper round and butter the paper.)

Step 2

Whisk 1½ cups (187 g) all-purpose flour, 1½ tsp. baking powder, and a rounded ¼ tsp. kosher salt in a medium mixing bowl. Stir ½ cup plus 1 Tbsp. whole milk and ½ tsp. vanilla extract in a small bowl.

Step 3

Beat ½ cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, softened, ¾ cup (150 g) granulated sugar, and 1 Tbsp. (packed) finely grated lemon zest (from about 2 lemons) in a large bowl with an electric mixer (either a stand mixer with paddle attachment or handheld mixer with beaters) on medium speed until pale and fluffy, about 2 minutes. Add 3 large eggs, room temperature, 1 at a time, beating well after each addition.

Step 4

At low speed, mix in flour mixture in 3 batches, alternating with milk mixture, beginning and ending with dry ingredients, and mixing until each addition is just incorporated.

Step 5

Pour cake batter into prepared pan and smooth top, then rap gently on counter to release any air bubbles. Bake until golden and a wooden tester inserted into the center comes out clean, 35–40 minutes. Let cool in pan 10 minutes.

Step 6

Whisk 1 cup (110 g) powdered sugar and ¼ cup fresh lemon juice in a medium bowl until smooth.

Step 7

Turn out cake onto a wire rack set over a baking sheet, then reinvert onto a platter. Brush top and side of warm cake with all of lemon glaze. Let cool completely. Just before serving, dust top of the cake with more powdered sugar if desired.
