I had to do some cooking this weekend and well, came across this fantastic recipe! You HAVE to try it 🙂 This recipe is from the cook book: Biscuits, baking and cakes that I have previously used for other recipes.
125g butter or margarine,
175g caster sugar,
175g self-raising flour,
2 medium or large eggs,
extra sugar for dusting
Start by creaming the butter and sugar together.
Beat in the eggs and sieve your flour into the mix, mix it all together to create your simple sponge.
Grate the zest off your lemon and then add it to the mixture and give it a good stir.
Line a baking tray (whatever shape you want) with baking paper. Pour your mix into the lined tin and bake in the oven for 25-30 minutes!
Take it out of the oven when baked through or until a golden colour on top.
Dust with sugar on top! Ta-dah, lemon cake ready to be served!
