honey and lemon cake

Post by Mrsfeefee on Thu 14 Mar 2013 - 14:51

this is the cake i made for kim's birthday. Lorraine sorry its taken me so long to post it!
because this is for a birthday cake ,it was 3 seperate cakes there are a lot of ingredients but it could be cut down.

400g softened butter
400g sugar
2 tbsp honey
2 lemons zest only
7 eggs
400g self raising flour, sifted

preheat oven to 180c
cream butter and sugar until very pale.light and fluffy. beat in lemon zest and honey
add eggs slowly plus a little flour if batter looks like it might curdle, fold in remaining flour with a large metal spoon.
divide mixture between cake tins , bake for 40-50 mins
remove from oven and cool in tins for 10 mins before turning out onto wire rack.



my cake tasted really nice but wasn't as light as it should have been.

No, I'm not putting my 'to do' list here, that would be far to organised, PLUS I would have to keep it up to date  Laughing
