Lemon Bunt Cake is Actually Quite Yummy!

19 May

So as the title explains I am not a lover of Lemon Cake but the Hubby is and as it was his Birthday I thought Ok let’s give him a special treat and make him a Lemon Bunt Cake (lol). I decided to freestyle the recipe and do you know what it really was very nice. Even me a non Lemon Cake eater liked it actually really liked it!

So here’s the recipe give it a go and let me know what you think…..

8 ozs Plain Flour
2 Level Teaspoons Baking Powder
6 ozs Caster Sugar
Finely Grated Rinds of 2 Lemons
Juice of the 2 Lemons
1 Teaspoon Vanilla Essence
2 Eggs
3 Tablespoons Milk

Cook for around 35 mins on gas mark 3 or 175c but check by sticking in a knife near the end of the cooking time if it comes out clean it’s cooked if not give it a bit longer.

As always I put all the ingredient into a mixer but if you want to do it properly make sure you mix the butter and sugar together first,then the wet ingredient then the flour and baking powder.

For the topping

5 Tablespoons Icing Sugar
Juice of 1 Lemon
Drop of yellow food colouring
Yellow Sprinkles

You need to make sure the cake is cooled properly before applying the topping I just drizzled the topping over the cake looked quite pretty but if you want it to cover the cake in icing I suggest doubling the topping recipe.
