This cake is so delicious, that it deserves two pictures. And if you make it, I am sure you will not stop at one slice only. I didn't.
Lemon butter cake has got to be the easiest and quickest cake to make. From heating the oven to tasting was exactly 40 minutes. So ideal to make when you have guests coming and want a quick cake.
You will need....
250g SOFT BROWN SUGAR.
250g S.R.FLOUR (sifted)
3 EGGS (beaten)
Melt butter in microwave on 50% power.
Stir in sugar, then the flour, add the eggs
and the zest from the lemon. (Keep the juice from lemon for later)
Pour into a shallow tin which you have greased or lined with parchment paper. And bake in oven at 180c for approx 20 - 30 minutes.
Mix juice from lemon with enough caster sugar to form a paste, and spread on cake while still hot from oven.
As I have only two slices left of this delicious cake, I shall be making it again at the weekend. I wonder what it would be like with orange, instead of lemon. Hmmmmm.
