Thought I’d do some baking tonight and this is what I made. I have actually missed baking because I haven’t been able to find time in the past few months. Now that my semester is over I’v got a whole summer to do anything I want and thought I’d start with baking. This cake was one of the easiest I’v made. You just chuck all the ingredients in a bowl, mix and bake. It is a fresh cake because lemon is a refreshing flavour. It’s not very heavy or rich. It’s a light, fluffy cake drenched in the drizzle and so the inside is just perfect. On to the recipe…
Ingredients for the cake
- 170g self-raising flour
- 170g caster sugar
- 170g softened butter
- 1 tsp baking powder
- 3 eggs
- Zest of 2 lemons
Ingredients for the drizzle
- Juice of 2 lemons
- 110g icing sugar or confectionary sugar
1) Weigh out the ingredients and pre heat the oven to 180C (around 356 Fahrenheit)
4) Let it rest and poke the cake using a skewer.
Hope you enjoyed this! Give it a go. For first time bakers, this would be perfect to try out.
