To make this amazing cake, you will need the following ingredients: 2 cups of all-purpose flour, 1 and 1/2 cups of granulated sugar, 1 cup of unsalted butter (at room temperature), 4 large eggs, 1/4 cup of lemon juice, 2 tablespoons of lemon zest, 1/2 cup of milk, 2 teaspoons of baking powder, 1/2 teaspoon of salt, and 1 cup of lemon chips.

Start by preheating your oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit (175 degrees Celsius). Grease and flour a 9x5-inch loaf pan or line it with parchment paper for easy removal later.

In a medium-sized bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, and salt. Set it aside for now.

In a separate large bowl, cream together the butter and sugar until light and fluffy. This should take about 2-3 minutes using an electric mixer. Add the eggs one at a time, mixing well after each addition. Add the lemon juice and zest and mix until well combined.

Now, gradually add the flour mixture to the wet ingredients, alternating with the milk.

Begin and end with the flour mixture, mixing just until combined after each addition. Be careful not to overmix as it can result in a denser cake.

Gently fold in the lemon chips, ensuring they are evenly distributed throughout the batter. Pour the batter into the prepared loaf pan, smoothing the top with a spatula.

Bake the cake in the preheated oven for about 50-60 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean. If the top starts browning too quickly, you can cover it with aluminum foil to prevent burning.

Once the cake is done, remove it from the oven and let it cool in the pan for about 10-15 minutes.
