Prepare the cake pan

Preheat the oven to 180 degrees Celsius (350 degrees Fahrenheit). Grease and line the bottom of a tray cake with parchment paper.
This will help the cake release easily after baking.

Make the batter

1. In a large bowl, cream together the butter and sugar until the mixture becomes soft and creamy.
2. Gradually add the eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition.
3. In another bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, and salt.
4. Gradually add the dry ingredients to the butter mixture, continuously mixing.
5. Add the grated lemon zest and freshly squeezed lemon juice, and mix until the lemon flavor is evenly distributed.

Done

Bake the cake

1. Pour the batter into the prepared cake pan and smooth the top.
2. Bake the cake in the preheated oven for approximately 30-35 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean, with no traces of batter.
3. Remove the cake from the oven and let it cool in the pan for a few minutes, then remove it from the pan and allow it to cool completely on a wire rack.

4
Done

Prepare the lemon glaze

1. In a bowl, mix together the powdered sugar, lemon juice, and vanilla extract.
2. Stir the mixture until you have a smooth glaze.
