Lemon Pound Cake

Hello everyone, I hope you’ve had a good day today. The recipe I have here is a Lemon Pound Cake, something I was trying to create and bake for a little while. I love the texture of the cake and the bright yellow colour, it also reminds me of the cake served with school dinners, fluffy and filling!! I really enjoyed making the cake because the ingredients and method were very different to a normal cake but it turned out amazing and tastes delicious. This cake would be perfect for any occasion and enjoyed by many people.

Recipe: Lemon Pound Cake (makes 1 loaf tin)

Ingredients

280g self-raising flour

2 tsp baking powder

195g caster sugar

1/4 tsp salt

Zest of 1/2 a lemon

110g butter

1 egg

235ml milk

1 tsp vanilla extract

3 tbsp lemon juice

Method

  • First thing, preheat the oven to gas mark 5 and line a loaf tine with baking paper.
  • Then add the dry ingredients (flour,, baking powder, sugar, salt and zest) to a large bowl and mix well.
  • Next, add the butter, egg, milk, vanilla extract and lemon juice.
  • Mix everything together until you get a smooth cake batter, that’s still a little thick.
  • Pour into the loaf tin and bake in the oven for 1 hour, but after the first 30 minutes turn it up to gas mark 6.
  • Dust with a little icing sugar and leave to cool down completely before serving.
