Lemon cake

When life is giving you lemons - bake a lemon cake.

Using things I have had home managed to bake this delightful lemon cake. Light and balanced - going perfect with an afternoon tea or coffee if you prefer. It's been 6 days since we are staying home and with my all ups and downs I still try to create something what can cheer you all up. Try to bake it home. This is one of those recipes where you do not need any extra powers and you would have to really try hard to do it wrong! 


  • 170 g butter (room temperature)
  • 170 g sugar
  • 3 medium eggs
  • 200 g flour
  • 1,5 tsp baking powder
  • 2 lemons 
  • 50 g sugar
  • 50 icing sugar


  1. Preheat oven till 170°C. 
  2. Line a baking tin (14cm x 23 cm) with a parchment pepper.
  3. In a large bowl by using a mixer mix butter and and sugar until fluffy.
  4. Add first egg and combine well. Repeat with resining eggs.
  5. Zest both lemons and add the peal into the butter.
  6. Sieve flour and baking powder into the bowl and mix with spatula.
  7. Move the batter to the baking tin and bake for 45 min.
  8. Juice two lemons and to the juice add both sugars. Coming well. 
  9. Remove a cake from the tin and place it on the baking tray.
  10. Pour a juice with sugars over a luck worm cake. 

I hope you all are doing well and will enjoy this very moist lemon cake.
