- 1 3/4 cups Self-raising flour
- 1 cup castor sugar
- 1 tsp Lemon rind

- 185 ml fresh milk
- 1 tsp lemon essence
- 2 large eggs
- 3/4 tsp baking powder

This has got to be THE easiest and quickest cake I’ve made yet! As the name suggests, you just put in the ingredients all at once, give a quick mix and
chuck put gently it into the oven and you’re done! It’s that simple. Works great when you’re feeling “super-tired” as my little girls would say. Okay let’s get to it.
- Preheat oven to 160 degrees Celsius/ 310 degrees Fahrenheit/ Gas Mark 4. Get your ingredients ready. These are Self-raising flour (1 3/4 cups), castor sugar (1 cup), lemon rind (1 tsp), lemon juice (2 tbsp), margarine/butter (120g), milk (185ml), lemon essence (1 tsp), eggs (2 large eggs), baking powder (3/4 tsp) and salt (pinch of salt). Sift the flour together with the salt and baking powder into your mixing bowl. Add the rest of the ingredients in any order you wish 🙂 . Mix until everything is well combined.
- When batter is ready, grease and line your loaf tin with grease-proof paper. Put your batter into the tin and bake for at least 45 minutes or until skewer comes out clean. And your lemon cake is ready. Allow to cool before you apply any icing (if you’re planning on doing so). Here I used fresh cream frosting (follow this link to learn how to make fresh cream cream frosting) and sprinkled some extra lemon rind on top.
