Lemon Butter Cake

I have tried the 1st recipe of the Lemon Butter Cake from Sonia and love it a lot. As she told me the 2nd recipe is even nicer so of course must try, although it took me a few years lol.

Recipe adapted from Nasi Lemak Lover

Ingredients : (for 8” round cake pan)
250g butter
200g sugar
2 lemon, finely grate the rind
4 large eggs
280g cake flour
2tsp of double action baking powder
4tbsp milk

Lemon glaze
8tbsp sugar
2 lemon, extract juice
2 lemon, finely grate the rind

Method :
1. Sift cake flour and baking powder in a bowl.
2. Beat butter with the sugar until pale and fluffy.
3. Add in egg one at a time, then add in lemon rind, mixing well.
4. Fold in the flour and milk, combine well.
5. Pour the mixture into cake tin.
6. Bake in pre-heated oven at 180C for 50mins.
7. While baking the cake, start to prepare the lemon glaze.
8. Mix sugar and lemon juice and cook over low heat till sugar dissolved, add in lemon rind, set aside.
9. When cake done, remove cake from the oven and prick all over with a skewer.
10. Pour over the lemon glaze over the hot cake.
11. Ideally to leave cake to set overnight, to get better flavour.

The cake is soft and moist, with the adding of lemon glaze, the taste is so good and refreshing. My MIL likes this cake a lot due to the sourish taste.
