Lemons and limes are in season. I got this recipe from a workmate to try and I am sharing it with you all too. If you have tree full of lemon or lemons going cheap in the market try using them in a recipe like this.

I did a very small loaf  and you can multiply it to a the size you like. You can freeze this cake with out a problem. To freeze use individual bags to store. So thawing becomes easy.

 

Ingredients

  • 95g Self Raising Flour
  • 110g Sugar
  • 1 Egg
  • Rind of one lemon
  • 90ml Milk
  • 30 ml Oil
  • 1/2Tsp lemon juice for the loaf.

Ingredients for the Syrup

  • 1/4 Cup Lemon Juice
  • 50g Sugar

Method

  1. Add sugar and the egg in to a mixing bowl and mix until creamy.
  2. Next add lemon rind, milk and the flour.
  3. Add a tsp lemon juice and mix well.
  4. After pour the mixture in to the loaf pan and bake 30 minutes on 180C about 20-30 minutes or until a skewer inserted comes out clean. Meanwhile do the syrup by adding sugar and lemon juice together. Bring to boil and leave on the lowest heat or switch off the stove.
  5. When the cake is out poke the cake and pour the hot syrup on to it and leave in the tray to cool down.
