Servings: 12 slices
  • 170 g (⅔+¼ cup) white caster sugar (superfine sugar)
  • 170 g (1½ sticks) slightly salted butter
  • 2 medium free-range eggs
  • 170 g (1 cup + 3 tbsp) self-raising white flour (self-rising flour), sifted
  • Zest of 2 unwaxed lemons (A standard UK lemon yields about 2 tbsp of juice. Adjust accordingly for larger lemons)
  • Juice of 3 unwaxed lemons
  • 4 tbsp icing sugar (powdered sugar)
  1. Grease and line your nonstick cake tin. If you don't have parchment paper, greasing and dusting with flour can prevent sticking.
  2. Preheat the oven to 180°C (160°C fan, 350°F).
  3. In a large bowl, whisk together sugar and butter until fluffy.
  4. Add eggs and whisk until well combined.
  5. Fold in sifted flour until smooth.
  6. Gently mix in the zest of two lemons and the juice of one lemon.
  7. Spoon the batter into the prepared cake tin.
  8. Bake for 25-30 minutes until golden and a skewer inserted comes out clean.
  9. In a small pan, mix the juice of two lemons with icing sugar.
  10. Heat over medium-low heat until sugar dissolves, then bring to a boil for 1-2 minutes until syrupy.
  11. While the cake is still warm, poke holes all over with a skewer.
  12. Carefully pour the lemon syrup over the cake, allowing it to soak in.
  13. Allow the cake to cool, then slice generously and enjoy with a hot cup of tea or coffee.
