Tomorrow I'm hosting the November gathering of the Cheapskates Crafters card making ladies (doesn't that sound formal, it's really just a bunch who like to get together to chat and make cards) and I can't wait. As per our usual routine we all bring a small plate of something yummy to share for afternoon tea.
I've made this Simple Lemon Cake to share tomorrow afternoon. It's delicious, moist and really good.
Simple Lemon CakeIngredients:
2 cups SR flour
1 cup sugar
¾ cup vegetable oil
¾ cup water
1 teaspoon lemon extract
1 pkt lemon jelly crystals
1 cup icing sugar
3 tbsp lemon juice
Preheat oven to 175 degrees Celsius. Grease and flour a 22cm x 33cm cake tin. Mix all cake ingredients, except icing sugar and lemon juice, and beating well. Pour into the prepared pan. Bake for approximately 35-40 minutes. Test cake is cooked by inserting a toothpick into the centre. If it comes out clean, the cake is done. While cake is baking, mix icing sugar and lemon juice. Spread over a warm cake for a crusty glaze or over a cool cake for a thicker glaze.
