I would say, cakes are our creation. We can mix and match the ingredients to bake a perfect cake. This time, I used only lemon zest with other basic ingredients. I turned out simply superb with soft, fluffy inside & crispy, crunchy outside.
This cake is perfect during tea time. Lemon has got its unique taste and aroma. Addition of lemon zest is the real twist which made this cake yumm:)
- 200 gms softened butter
- 200 gms sugar
- Grated zest of 1 lemon
- 1 1/2 cups plain flour
- Baking powder - 1 tsp
- Eggs - 3 nos (lightly beaten)
- Milk -2 tbsp
Directions to bake :
# Preheat the oven to 180 C. Lightly grease the baking pan & line the base with non-stick baking paper.
# Cream the butter, sugar and lemon zest until light and fluffy. Sieve the flour with baking powder. Slowly add the eggs, alternating with a tbsp of flour. Fold in remaining flour and then the milk.
# Pour into the prepared tin and bake for 60 min or until done.
Perfect with tea.
