A Loaf of Lemon

Lemons

This Lemon Loaf is moist and tasty and easy to make, bringing a delicious aroma to your kitchen. It holds well over several days and also freezes well…

125g butter
125g caster sugar
2 eggs (at room temp.)
125g self-raising flour 

zest of 1 lemon 

50g caster sugar
juice of 1 lemon

Preheat the oven to 180C and grease an 8” tin.

Sift flour and baking powder together. Cream the butter and the 125g sugar until creamy and fluffy.  Add the eggs, flour and lemon zest.

Place mixture in tin and bake for 25 minutes approx.

In the meantime, stir the 50g sugar into the lemon juice. Spoon this mixture over the loaf when it’s removed from the oven and piping hot and still in the tin. Remove from the tin after about ten minutes and leave to cool.

Delicious with a cup of tea – at any time of the day!
