How to Make It
Preheat oven to 350°F. Coat a 9- x 5-inch metal loaf pan with baking spray.
Sift together flour, baking powder, and salt in a medium bowl.
Beat butter and sugar with a heavy-duty stand mixer fitted with a paddle attachment on medium-high speed until light and fluffy, about 3 minutes. Reduce speed to medium-low. Add vanilla. Add eggs, 1 at a time, beating until fully incorporated after each addition. Add flour mixture, and beat just until incorporated.
Pour batter into prepared pan. Smooth top. Bake in preheated oven until a toothpick inserted in center comes out with moist crumbs clinging, 35 to 40 minutes. Let cool in pan on a wire rack 20 minutes. Remove from pan, and let cool completely on wire rack, about 1 hour.
Whisk together honey and lemon juice in a small bowl. Poke holes in top of cake with a wooden skewer or pick, and drizzle honey mixture over cake.
