Hello Dear Reader,
Before I get onto today’s frugal and lovely cake, if you want, would you nominate me for a blog awards? The button is on the right of your screen. Thanks xxxxx
This is a thank you cake. I couldn’t think of a suitable present so I resorted to lemon drizzle cake. It’s a nice quick and easy cake to make.
10oz SR Four,
10oz butter (I use Utterly Butterly as it’s on offer)
5 eggs (they weigh 2oz each)
Zest of one lemon.
Put the lot in a bowl and either beat together or mix with a hand held electric mixer. Pour into two greased or lined 7″ cake tins.
Cook for 30 minutes on 180 (celius.) degrees – you can do the conversion for your cooker. Just google it.
Whilst cooling make the filling and topping.
Filling – Lemon butter icing.
Zest of one lemon,
8oz of icing sugar
3oz of butter (I use a cheap substitute)
Beat together until you have a soft frosting finish. Now leave in the fridge until you want it.
Juice of one lemon.
4oz of granulated sugar.
Assembling the cake – allow to totally cool. Spoon some of the lemon topping onto one of the sponges, but leave the main for the topping. Now use a palette knife to spread the lemon butter icing onto one of the sponges. Put the other sponge on top. Now carefully spoon the lemon topping all over it, some will soak in creating the sticky lemony topping.
Chill until you want to eat it.
Or………………….give to someone as a gift, or take to a fundraiser or make one for the local fete.
