   for several minutes to warm the eggs gently.

   salt, and sift them together onto a large piece of
   waxed paper.  Put the butter in a large mixing bowl,
   and beat until it is smooth and creamy. Slowly add the

   smooth and well blended. Add the eggs all at once, and
   beat until the mixture is light and fluffy.
   Sprinkle about 1.2 the flour mixture over the butter
   mixture, and beat until well blended. Stir the lemon
   extract and the lemon rind into the buttermilk. Beat
   1/2 the buttermilk mixture into the batter.  Add the
   remaining flour and buttermilk mixtures, and beat
   until the batter is smooth and well blended.
   Pour the batter into the prepared pan or pans. Bake
   the bud\ndt cake at 350F for 1 to 1 1/4 hours, the
   loaf cakes for 40 to 45 minutes, or until a pick
   inserted in the center of a cake comes out clean.
   Remove from the oven, and let cool on a rack for 5
   minutes, then turn out onto the rack to cool
   completely before serving.
