  2. Beat butter at medium speed until creamy; gradually add sugar, beating well. Add beaten egg yolks, beating well.
  3. Combine flour, baking powder, and salt; add to butter mixture alternately with 3/4 cup milk, beginning and ending with flour mixture. Beat at low speed just until blended after each addition. Stir in 1 tsp. lemon zest, 1 tsp. fresh lemon juice, and 1 tsp. vanilla. Spoon batter into 3 greased and floured 8-inch round cake pans.
