I’ve been feeling a little under the weather lately. I find solace in cooking and baking, so I have been experimenting a lot too. This sudden crave for something sweet is killing me, so I made something out from whatever ingredients that I can find in the fridge.
FOR THE CAKE
113 grams softened butter (make sure it’s really soft)
170 grams self-raising flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
100 grams superfine sugar
2 large eggs
6 tablespoons milk
1 large lemon (unwaxed, finely grated rind of)
FOR THE ICING
Remember to line your baking tins with baking parchment. I did not, so it is difficult to get the cakes out.
Tip all cake ingredients into large mixing bowl and beat for 2-3 minutes; mixture will drop easily off spoon. Spoon mixture into tin and smooth with back of spoon.
Bake for 30 minutes until golden & firm to the touch.
Beat together icing ingredients and pour over the cake while it is still HOT.
