Scale

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 1/2 cups flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • Grated rind from 1 lemon
  • Juice from 1 lemon
  • 1/4 cup sugar

Instructions

  1. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Prepare a loaf pan by lining it with wax paper. Set aside.
  3. With a mixer cream together the butter and sugar.
  4. Add in the eggs, 1 at a time.
  5. In a separate bowl combine the flour, baking powder and salt.
  6. Add 1/2 of the flour mix to the butter mix.
  7. Then add 1/2 of the milk.
  8. Add the remaining flour mix.
  9. Mix in the remaining milk and lemon gratings.
  10. Bake for 45-50 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the centre comes out clean.
  11. In the mean time, combine the juice from 1 lemon with 1/4 cup sugar.
  12. When the cake is done baking, take it out of the oven, and pierce holes in it with a knife – make sure to get to the bottom of the loaf so the lemon juice mixture can get right down into the cake. Pour lemon juice/sugar mix over warm cake.
  13. Let sit. This cake is even better the next day.
  14. Enjoy!
