Hi lovelies ♥

Tonight I'm craving something sweet, kind of like I do every night - I'm a total sugar junkie ;)
So I thought I would share this amaaazing lemon cake recipe with you, if I wasn't so lazy, I would be making this right now! haha.
Feel free to adjust the lemon zest to your personal taste, I like an obvious but not over-powering lemon taste, so I always go with 2 tablespoons lemon zest :)
I hope you love this as much as I do!

Ingredients:
  • 550ml Flour
  • 3 Extra large eggs
  • 3 Teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 pinch of salt
  • 150g Butter or margarine
  • 200ml milk
  • 50ml lemon juice
  • 2 Tablespoons lemon zest
  • 300ml Castor sugar

Method:
  • Preheat oven to 180 degrees Celsius
  • Cream butter until it's soft and light in colour. (medium speed on electrical beater)
  • Add sugar, a tablespoon at a time, and continue creaming until light and fluffy.
  • Add lemon zest.
  • Add eggs one at a time, beating well in between each addition.
  • Add Vanilla essence and lemon juice
  • Sift dry ingredients and add to the mixture alternately with the milk. (a lil' bit of flour and then a lil' bit of milk ;) )

Pour mixture into a greased 22cm cake tin and bake for about 45 minutes (depending on your oven) if a skewer stick comes out clean, it's ready!

This cake is so delicious with butter icing, but I didn't have any icing sugar on the day I baked the cake in the picture, so I iced it with cooked flour frosting, which was really good too!

Let me know if you try this recipe, you won't be sorry! ( Well, you might be sorry after you get on the scale hehe)

See you soon loves xoxo
