My Mum passed this recipe on to me when I began making my own home, you can make it for a song and its lovely to have to hand when someone calls over. It reminds me of her whenever I make it – which makes it taste all the more sweet!
6 oz self raising flour – sieved
4 oz margarine
6 oz caster sugar
2 tablespoons milk
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1 lemon rind -grated
Chuck everything in a mixing bowl and mix well
Pour into a greased 2 LB loaf tin and bake for 1 hour at 180C gas mark 4
Make icing with the juice from the lemon and ice the cake when baked before you turn it out to cool.
Lovely with a pot of tea…
or a cheeky glass of fizz!
