Luscious Lemon Cake Recipe

A friend of ours has given us a recipe we thought sounded so good we had to share it!

  • Warm bowl and heat oven at gas mark 4 (or 180 degree C/160 degree C for fan oven)
  • Mix 4oz (100g) of soft marg & 6oz (150g) of caster sugar until smooth (mix fast to add air)
  • Sieve 6oz (150g) of self-raising flour (from a height as this adds air for lightness)
  • Add 2 large eggs, 4 tablespoons of milk, pinch of salt and grated rind of 1 lemon
  • Mix for at least three minutes – whip to add air
  • Spoon into a well-greased loaf tin
  • Bake for 45-60 minutes – test with clean knife – if it comes out clean it’s done
  • Take out of oven and cool
  • Mix 3 tablespoons of icing sugar with the lemon juice
  • Prick cake, pour over juice and serve….yummm!
