Lemon Cake Recipe

Lemon Cake Recipe

Baking has become one of my new hobbies! Few weeks ago, I gave you a chocolate cake recipe that is so easy, you cannot fail! Today’s recipe is as easy to be honest. But instead of cake, we’re getting lemon! Indeed, is there anything better than some lemon cake to eat with a hot cup of tea!

-200g flour
-150g white sugar
-100g butter
-15g baking soda
-2 small lemons
-4 eggs

1. Pre-heat over at temperature 180°C. Melt the better in hot-water bath.

2. Clean the lemons. Grate the lemon to get the zest. Cut them in half and squeeze to get the juice.

3. Mix the flour, sugar and baking soda together. Add the eggs, one by one and mix. Add the melted butter, the lemon juice and lemon zest.

4. Butter a baking pan and add the mixture.

5. Cook for 40 minutes in the oven. Check with a knife if the cake is cooked everywhere.

6. Put on a plate, pour yourself a cup of tea and enjoy!

    Yes, it looks so yummy and tasty. My wife never bakes. My two daughters are good cook and baker for that is their work abroad. How I wish we could have your recipe for them to bake one. But our problem is we don’t have a baking machine or range.

    This looks amazing. I bought myself some lemon cake today and now I wish I made it instead. It is a really simple recipe as well, a lot of recipes that I find on blogs are filled with like one teaspoon of something I’ve never heard of. I have to try this out.

  32. July 21, 2017 / 6:01 am

    It looks fantastic. Perfect little coffee cake and it looks just the way my mum would make it. Gonna look out for organic lemon now to use the zest in this. Feeling inspired!

  33. July 21, 2017 / 8:33 am

    Lemon cake sounds different. I will surely try it out to make a delicious cake for my next birthday..:)

  34. July 21, 2017 / 9:11 am

    I’ve grown up in southern Germany and lemon cake is all the rage there. Totally forgot about it since I moved away which is a shame. I used to love it. Your version seems so much nicer though because it is not drenched in a sugary glaze. So much healthier!

    Lemon pound cake is my weakness and you just gave me the recipe to make it :). Love oks so delicious!

  36. July 21, 2017 / 5:02 pm

    I think that lemon cake looks really delicious. I like the fruity a bit sour taste of lemon in a cake since it’s not too overwhelming.

  37. July 21, 2017 / 6:03 pm

    Oh my goodness, that looks so yummy! I remember a while back, my mum went through a phase where she would make lemon drizzle cake. I’m kinda craving it again now!

  38. July 21, 2017 / 7:11 pm

    Lemon cake is one of my favorites. I just absolutely love lemon flavoring in almost everything. Even lemon cokes are awesome.

  39. July 21, 2017 / 7:11 pm

    This looks delicious, I love anything lemon!!

    Baking is one of those things my wife and I did before we had kids. Maybe we can find time to do it again now that our kids are teens already. This lemon cake recipe seems easy and yummy enough.

  45. July 21, 2017 / 7:56 pm

    My husbands absolute FAVORITE is lemon cake!! I’ve never made him one (I’m not a very adventurous cook!) but this sounds straight forward. I’m definitely giving it a go next week to surprise him one night! Thank you 😋😋

  47. July 21, 2017 / 8:14 pm

    Absolutely love lemon cake!!! Lemon Drizzle is my go to recipe!!! Little tip – roll the lemon over the kitchen surface before you slice it in half to juice – makes it more tender and get more juice out = more lemony lemon cake!!!

  48. July 21, 2017 / 8:34 pm

    Oh my goodness I have all the craving for this! Lemon cake is my favorite! I will definitely try this recipe

    This is quite easy! I used to always bake Chocolate cake and brownies. I would like to try baking a lemon cake. Instead of white sugar, I want to use Muscovado or Coconut sugar.
