3 tablespoons grated lemon rind (about 2 lemons)

3 tablespoons fresh lemon juice (about 1 lemon)

Cooking spray

1 1/2 cups plus

2 tablespoons granulated sugar, divided

3 cups all-purpose flour (13 1/2 ounces)

1 teaspoon baking powder

3/4 teaspoon salt

1/2 teaspoon baking soda

3 large eggs

1 cup powdered sugar

1 1/2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice

1 tablespoon low-fat buttermilk

Preheat oven to 350°.To prepare cake, combine rind and 3 tablespoons juice in a small bowl. Set aside.

Coat a 10-inch Bundt pan with cooking spray; dust with 2 tablespoons granulated sugar.Lightly spoon the flour into dry measuring cups, and level with a knife. Combine flour, baking powder, salt, and baking soda in a large bowl, stirring well with a whisk.

Place butter in a large bowl; beat with a mixer at medium speed until light and fluffy. Gradually add remaining 1 1/2 cups granulated sugar, and rind mixture beating until well blended. Add eggs, 1 at a time, beating well after each addition. Add flour mixture and 1 cup buttermilk alternately to sugar mixture, beating at low speed, beginning and ending with flour mixture.Spoon batter into prepared pan.

Bake at 350° for 40 minutes or until a wooden pick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool in pan 10 minutes on a wire rack; remove from pan. Cool completely on wire rack.To prepare glaze, combine powdered sugar, 1 1/2 tablespoons juice, and 1 tablespoon buttermilk in a small bowl, stirring until smooth.
