Lemon Cake

Yummy Bakes | 3:57 PM |
After a few weeks' break from baking, my oven seem to be working well!  Such a nice golden brown top, would you believe there was something wrong with the oven?

This zesty cake is moist, soft and fluffy.

Recipe Source: The Little Teochew

- 113g butter
- 170g caster sugar
- 170g self-raising flour
- 1 level teaspoon baking powder
- 2 large eggs
- Grated rind of 1 lemon
- 5 tbsp fresh milk or evaporated milk

1. Pre-heat oven to 180 degree celsius. Grease and line a 6-inch pan.

2. Place all ingredients in a bowl and mix using an electric mixer.

3. Pour into prepared pan and bake for about 40 minutes, until a skewer comes out clean.

I paired this zesty, fragrant cake with a cup of Lipton Forest Fruit tea and it was very good.
