Not Another Lemon Cake!

If you’ve been reading Something to Ponder About for a while, you might recall that I often will espouse the health benefits of adding lemons to one’s diet, in any form. If you are unsure what I am talking about, you can read more about the benefits of lemons here.

“A lemon a day keeps …” well, you know the rest….

You might also know that I like that lemony ‘zing’ in foods, so you won’t be at all surprised to find me posting another  Lemon cake recipe. Although, this one is really useful, as it is quick and super easy, the Lazy man’s, (or person’s), Lemon Cake. You just bung it all in together and cook in the oven.

Lemon Cake

Easy Lemon cake

Ingredients

125 g Butter

1 tablespoon Lemon rind

2 teaspoons lemon juice

1 cup Caster sugar (or fine white sugar)

2 Eggs

1  1/2 cup Self-Raising* flour

*N.B. Self Raising Flour is a combination of 1  1/2 cup plain flour and 3 teaspoons baking powder

1/2 cup Sour Cream

1 tablespoon Icing sugar (to dust the top after cooking)

Lemon juice, extra

Method

Combine all the ingredients, at low speed in an electric mixer, until thoroughly mixed.

Increase speed and mix till batter is smooth.

Place batter in greased and lightly floured Bundt or ring tin.

Cook in a pre-heated oven for 45 minutes at 180 ° (that is a fan forced electric oven).

Cool for 5- 10 minutes and then turn out.

With a skewer, poke holes in the top of the cake and drizzle the extra lemon juice* on top.

Dust with icing sugar and it is ready to serve.

Simple, quick and very delicious.

Tip: The cake will keep better in humid climates if you restrict the amount of lemon juice that is poured on top.

      Thank you Daniela. It is a delicious smell when cooking a lemon cake. And gingerbread or cakes with cardamon are also divine. Have you tried cardamon in baking?
