Combine: Gradually add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients, mixing until just combined. Be careful not to overmix..

Bake: Pour the batter into the prepared cake pan and smooth the top with a spatula. Bake for 28-30 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.

Cool: Let the cake cool in the pan for about 10 minutes before transferring it to a wire rack to cool completely.

Prepare Glaze: While the cake is cooling, make the glaze by whisking together the powdered sugar, lemon juice, and vanilla until smooth.

Glaze: Once the cake is completely cool, drizzle the glaze over the top, letting it drip down the sides for a beautiful finish.
