½ cup butter

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease a 9-inch square baking pan.

Beat sugar and butter together in a mixing bowl using an electric mixer until light and fluffy. Beat in eggs and vanilla extract until well combined.

Sift flour and baking powder together in a separate bowl; add to creamed mixture until incorporated. Pour in milk, lemon zest, and lemon juice; mix until smooth. Spoon batter into the prepared pan.
