lemon poundcake

i made this for a potluck yesterday....

2 cups unrefined sugar
1 cup Earth Balance (or other vegan margarine)
egg substitute for 4 eggs
3 cups unbleached all-purpose flour
1/2 t. baking powder
1/2 t. baking soda
1/2 t. salt
3/4 cup "buttermilk" (mix 2 t. lemon juice with enough soymilk to equal 3/4 cup)
2 T. freshly grated lemon peel
1.5 T. lemon juice
1 t. lemon extract

pre-heat oven to 325. beat sugar and margarine together in large bowl. beat in egg substitute slowly, in about 4 equal parts (i.e., pretend you are adding in four eggs, one at a time). until well mixed. reduce mixer speed and gradually add flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt alternately with "buttermilk" until well mixed. stir in lemon peel, lemon juice and lemon extract.

spoon batter into greased and floured bundt pan, or one large loaf pan, or two small loaf pans. bake for 40 to 60 minutes. cool 10 minutes; remove from pan, then cool completely.
