This cake is for lovers of all things lemon, the rich zesty flavour and right amount of tang will have you asking for more. You can have it for breakfast with a cup of coffee and it is also great on its own. You can also decide to do without the glaze.
2 cups plain flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
2 pcs eggs
1 cup low fat milk
1 cup sugar
1 teaspoon salt
1 cup unsalted butter
4 pcs lemon
1 teaspoon vanilla essence
1 cup icing sugar
Pre-heat oven to 350°F
Mix baking powder, flour and salt in another bowl. Set aside.
Mix butter, sugar, 3 tablespoons lemon juice and about 3 tablespoons lemon zest in a bowl using a stand or electric hand mixer until fluffy. Beat in the eggs one at a time. Mix in 1/2 of the dry ingredients first and then add the remaining (do not over mix).
Grease a 9″ x 5″ cake pan with butter and dust with flour. Pour batter into pan and allow to bake for about 60 minutes. To check if done insert toothpick in the centre and it should come out clean.
While the loaf bakes make the glaze. Combine 1/4 cup lemon juice and 1 cup icing sugar in a bowl and mix. It should be pourable but still thick. If too thick add more lemon juice.
Allow to cool for about 5 mins and transfer to rack. Poke holes all around the top with a toothpick or skewer. Pour the glaze over and allow to drip a bit to the sides.
Allow the glaze to harden before slicing up to serve.
