Wow!!! It’s February already. Hope everyone had a great January.
Going through my mum’s recipe binder again, I found this absolutely beautiful and light lemon cake. I had to make it straight away and ‘boy’ the lemon flavour is amazing!!!
Lemons are among the world’s most popular citrus fruits. They grow on lemon trees and are a hybrid of the original citron and lime. There are many ways to enjoy lemons but they taste very sour and are usually not eaten alone or as a whole fruit.
So grab some fresh lemons, jump into the kitchen and get baking!!!
185g soft butter
3/4 cup caster sugar
1 tablespoon grated lemon zest
3 tablespoons self raising flour, plus
1 1/4 cups self raising flour
1/2 cup sugar
1/4 cup lemon juice
Topping: Mix roughly sugar and juice until just slurry. Spoon evenly over top of cake
Now put that jug on and sit back with a book and enjoy this beautiful zesty lemon cake for your morning or afternoon tea.
You may like to ice it with lemon icing instead.
