  5. Pour the batter into the prepared cake pan, spreading it evenly.
  6. Bake in the preheated oven for approximately 45-50 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
  7. Remove the cake from the oven and allow it to cool in the pan for 10 minutes. Then, transfer it to a wire rack to cool completely.
  8. Once the cake has cooled, you can frost it with your favorite lemon-flavored frosting or simply dust it with powdered sugar.
  9. Serve this delightful Limoncello Cake at your gathering of 8 people and savor the refreshing citrus flavors!
