Lemon Cake…

A a new cake recipe that I wanted to make for Geoff.

I had to abandon my first attempt at making it when my son called for a lift home from work as he had bike trouble.

So I rushed home from work on Friday to bake it before I left for Cambridge.

It was well worth the effort the cake was delicious, very moist and lemony.

Geoff loved it and he over spoilt me all weekend ( more about that later ) 🙂

If you make this cake for your husband/boyfriend/partner, I am sure you will get spoilt too 🙂

And the recipe is below……

115g self raising flourn95 019

1tsp baking powder

2 eggs

115g caster sugar

65ml double cream

lemon juice ( to taste)

45g melted butter.

oven temp 170/gas mark 3

Sift flour and baking powder together.

lightly beat eggs with the sugar, then beat cream into egg mixture for a minute.

add lemon juice.

Fold in the flour then gently fold in the melted butter.

Pour into loaf tin and bake for 45 minutes.

When cake is completely cold make the icing by mixing 30g of icing sugar with 1 tsp of lemon juice then drizzle over top of cake.
