Wednesday recipe!


Lemon Cake!!! Look at it! It’s just delicious!

This cake is by a very famous english lady called Mary Berry . I absolutely love her recipies !

Here’s what you will need:

  • 225g (8 oz) butter , softened
  • 225g (8 oz) caster sugar
  • 275g (10 oz) self-raising flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 4 eggs
  • 4 tablespoons milk
  • finely grated rind of 2 lemons

How to do it:

 1.Grease a tin and then line with paper, pushing it neatly into the corners of the tin. Pre-heat the oven to 160°C/325°F/Gas 

2.Measure all the ingredients for the traybake into a large bowl and beat well for about 2 minutes until well blended, an electric mixer is best for this but of course you can also beat by hand with a wooden spoon. Turn the mixture into the prepared tin, scraping the sides of the bowl with a plastic spatula to remove all of the mixture. Level the top gently with the back of the spatula.

3.Bake in the middle of the pre-heated oven for about 35-40 minutes or until the traybake springs back when pressed lightly with a finger in the centre and is beginning to shrink away from the sides of the tin.

4.Allow the traybake to cool in the tin for a few minutes then lift the traybake out of the tin still in the lining paper. Carefully remove the paper and put the traybake onto a wire rack placed over a tray (to catch drips of the topping).

Done! Very simple and easy and so so nice!

P.s I made a few changes to this recipe to my taste but you can find the original recipe here

Love M
