120 grams butter, softened
1 cup flour
3 tsp baking powder
2/3 cup White Sugar
2 large eggs
4 Tbsp milk
grated rind and juice of one lemon
juice of 1 lemon
1/2 cup White Sugar
few Tbsp boiling water (to dissolve sugar)
Preheat oven to 180˚C.
Grease and line a square 18cm baking tin. I used the 25 x 18cm slice pan I own and it was fine.
Put all cake ingredients together in a food processor, in order above and process for 15 seconds.
Pour mixture into tin and bake for 20-25 mins.
For topping – mix the lemon juice, sugar and boiling water together. This should be runny. Spoon topping onto cake while hot. Leave in tin before turning out when cool.
*This recipe can also be made with electric hand mixers. Place all cake ingredients in a bowl in the stated order and mix until combined.
