My last post was my one-hundredth, so to celebrate:
The recipe for a very simple cake, which however has made my reputation as a super baking queen.
Easy to whip up in a moment for unsuspected visitors.
- 4 eggs
- 250 gram baking flour
- 250 gram butter
- 200gram sugar
- a nice dash of lemon peel
warm butter so it’s very smooth (for those nót living in a scorching hot country), add the sugar and stir well! Add the eggs, stir well again! Slowly in small batches add the flower. If you want to do it really well you can sift it in the mixture using a sieve. (I am far to lazy for such finesse) (I don’t even use measurements; I just throw everything together until it looks right)
Add the lemon peel.
put your mixture into a nice pastry-mould, place it into the pre-heated oven (160 degrees Celsius) and don’t forget to place a dish of water in the bottom of the oven: this will keep the cake moist and succulent.
Bake for about 40 minutes. (That always very much depends on the quirkieness of your own oven)
