Cooking Time 40 mins
Ingredients

  • 4oz/113g Margarine

Method

  • Preheat oven to 350°F/180°C/gas mark 4
  • Grease and line a 1lb/450g baking tin
  • Cream together the margarine and caster sugar
  • Using a food mixer or blender add the eggs one at a time
  • Add the milk and lemon zest
  • Gently fold in the sifted flour
  • Bake on middle shelf of oven for approx 40 minutes
  • Insert a skewer into middle of the cake-if it comes out clean-it’s cooked
  • Allow to cool slightly
  • Mix the lemon juice with the icing sugar
  • Prick the top of cake all over with the skewer

  • I have previously used caster sugar (finely granulated) for the topping
  • Just dissolve the sugar in the lemon juice and pour over top
