Nannie’s Lemon Cake


Thank you very much to my lovely 90 year old Nannie for this yummy recipe!

6oz or 150g sifted self raising flour
6oz or 150g caster sugar
4oz or 100g butter softened
2 medium eggs
grated rind of 1 lemon
4 tablespoons milk

For the icing:
4oz or 100g icing sugar
juice of half a lemon

You will need a 2lb loaf tin lined with baking paper and greased- or use a silicone loaf mould – no greasing or lining needed! No need to pre-heat the oven (see below).

Cream the butter and sugar together with a hand whisk until light and fluffy.

Add the eggs, rind and milk and fold in the flour.

Put the cake in a cold oven and then turn to 150 degrees (fan forced) for 1 hour.

Let the cake cool in the tin for 5 mins and then turn out onto a cooling rack.

Mix the icing sugar and lemon juice together.

Make holes all over the top of the cake with a skewer and pour the icing over whilst the cake is still warm.

Moist, tangy and delicious!
