There is something satisfying about growing something and then being able to eat it...we are really enjoying the continual fruits of our lemon tree. On Monday I said I was baking a Lemon sour cream cake so here it is and again something quick and easy..that is if you have a lemon tree to grab from.
Lemon Sour Cream Cake
1 cup caster sugar
grated rind and juice of 1 lemon
1 cup self raising flour, sifted
1/2 cup sour cream
icing sugar, to dust
Beat butter until creamy. Gradually add sugar, beating until light and pale. Mix in rind. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition.
Fold flour into mixture alternatively with sour cream and juice. Pour into a greased and base-lined round cake tin.
Bake in moderately slow (160 C) for 35-40 mins or until cooked.
Cool in tin for 5 mins. Turn onto a wire rack to cool completely. Serve dusted with icing sugar
