Recipe Post N0.11- Lemon and Almond Cake

Happy Easter Saturday!

Since Mother's Day, I believe I haven't made a soild, big cake for some time. With Easter right around the corner and I feel it's been a while since I've posted an recipe, why not? Besides, this cake is suppposedly healthy with the substituted spelt flour and "organic eggs".

In order to concoct this basic cake, you'll require

200g of butter, softened plus extra for greasing

165g of sugar(although the recipe opted for golden caster sugar, I used caster)

3 large,free-range eggs(once again, the recipe desired organic)

50g of plain flour or spelt flour

125g of ground almonds

2 lemons(the juice of one and the grated zest of two)

For the icing:

1 lemon, juice require only

5-6 tbsp of icing sugar.

Baking in the making(a.k.a METHOD):

Firstly, pre-heat the oven to 180℃/160℃ -fan/ 350F/Gas Mark 4. Grease the base and sides of a 20-22cm/8-8½ inch round cake tin, lining the bottom with baking parchment.

Within a mixing bowl, cream together the butter & sugar until light and fluffy,using an electric whisk OR a wooden spoon. Gradually, beat in the eggs, one at a time. When the eggs are fully incorporated, fold in the flour, following the almonds abd then the lemon zest.

Scrape the mix into the tip, tapping the sides to release any air bubbles. Bake for 35-40 minutes or until the sponge is lightly golden-brown, coming away from the sides of the tin and the skewer inserted in the middle of the cake comes out clean.

While the cake remains moderately hot, pierce the cake with a chopstick or something similar with 15 or so holes, all over the cake. Drizzle with lemon juice, particuarly into the holes and allow the cake to cool in the tin.

To make the icing to accompany the lemon cake, mix the lemon juice but by bit into the icing sugar, in order to make a smooth paste.

Smooth icing on top and then serve. And volia! Wasn't so hard, was it?
