Moist lemon cake
INGREDIENTS

125g butter, softened
1 tablespoon finely grated lemon rind
1 cup (220g) caster sugar
2 eggs
1 cup (150g) self-raising flour
½ cup (75g) plain flour
½ cup (125ml) milk

Topping
½ cup (125ml) lemon juice
¼ cup (55g) caster sugar

NOTE: This recipe can be made two days ahead.

METHOD

Preheat the oven to moderate (180°/160°C fan-forced). Grease a deep 20cm round cake pan, then line the base with baking paper.

Beat the butter, rind and sugar in a small bowl with an electric mixer until light and fluffy. Add the eggs, one at a time, beating until combined between additions.

Stir in the sifted flours in two batches with the milk.

Spread the mixture into the prepared pan and bake in a moderate oven for about 45 minutes or until the cake is cooked when tested.

For the topping, combine the lemon juice and sugar in a jug; stir until the sugar is dissolved.

Pour the topping over the hot cake; allow cake to stand for 15 minutes before turning the cake onto a wire rack to cool.

Suitable to freeze. Not suitable to microwave.
