|The ingredients - I only use organic stuff|
Prep Time: 15 min (max)
Bake Time: 60-65 mins (11-12" cake form // 28 - 30cm )
250g unsalted Butter (8.82oz), room temperature
250g Sugar (8.82oz)
Lemon Zest from 2 organic Lemons, freshly grated
250g Flour (white) (8.82oz)
1 Tablespoon Baking Powder
Pinch of Salt
Fresh Juice of 5 Lemons
100g Powdered Sugar (3.5oz)
Make The Cake:
1) Butter a 11-12" cake from and preheat the oven to 350º F (= 180º C)
2) Beat the butter until it is soft and fluffy
3) Add the sugar and the eggs (either together or first the sugar, than the eggs) and beat until it is foamy
|butter and sugar. Yum :)|
5) Add flour, backing power and salt, and mix well
That's it! Put dough into cake form
And don't forget to enjoy some of the dough!
Bake for approx. 60 minutes. Let the cake cool off for a little bit, then use a knitting needle and poke at least 10 holes into the cake. Pour the whole juice-powdered sugar mix over the warm cake! It takes a while to be soaked up.
Happy Birthday, dearest husband!
