What I've Baked Wednesday...

Hi everyone,

A late post today because I have been so busy! I have baked though...

Lemon Cake

Not a very good photo! This is the lemon cake left plain how my hubby likes it. Daisy made her own lactose-free version (with a little help from auntie Charlotte) and decided to throw in her snacking raisins to improve the recipe! I also iced one cake and cut into squares...

Yeah it did run over the edges a little but it's fine!

Cut up and ready to eat. Here's the recipe...

225g marg
225g caster sugar
4 eggs
275g self-raising flour 
2tsp baking powder
2tbsp milk
Juice of 2 lemons (save a bit back for the icing)

Icing sugar and lemon juice to make icing

Oven 180oC for 40 mins

Wednesday is now baking day! 

Anyone else been baking?

Thanks for reading,

  1. No baking but I did cook a huge leg of lamb, we had roast with green beans and new potatoes and then it was a curry. There's still some left but its getting so hot now I think just salads will be on the menu.

    1. Yeah I know! I baked cakes and did the ironing yesterday hot! X
