Yummy Bakes | 11:30 AM |
Thank you Hearty-Bakes for experimenting and sharing your ultimate zingiest lemon cake. When I saw your cake, I could almost smell the lemony aroma in the kitchen.

Yes, indeed this cake is very moist and tangy.

2 large eggs
Finely grated Lemon rind from 2 lemons (set aside 1/4 to sprinkle top)
200g Self-Raising Flour

1tbsp Lemon Juice (*I prefer my cake with light hint of lemon. If you prefer it stronger, add a little more)

1. Grease and line bottom of 8" baking tin.
2. Preheat oven 175°C
3. Whisk butter and sugar till fluffy and pale in colour.
