I can always find my favourite baking recipes because they are the extra thick pages in my recipe book, where cake batter and everything else has splattered on the pages over years of use. Often I have to gently pull the pages apart.
Lemon Cake/Loaf is one of these recipes and it is from our local school recipe book that was done several years ago as a fund raiser. I like that these recipes are the contributions from local families of their tried and true recipes.
Melt 125 g butter
Add 2 beaten eggs
1/2 cup milk
Stir into that
1 cup sugar
1 1/2 cups self raising flour
1/4 tsp salt
Grated rind of one lemon
Pour into a greased loaf tin and cook for about 35 - 40 minutes at 170 - 180 degrees celsius
Mix juice of lemon
1/4 cup sugar
Pour over cake while still hot after taking out of the oven.
In our house the cake does not get a chance to cool, the first slices are eaten while it is still warm.
