Ingredients for Lemon Cake:

  • 160g of sugar
  • 160g softened butter
  • 1 tablespoon of lemon zest
  • 50ml of lemon juice
  • 250g of flour
  • A pinch of salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon of baking powder
  • 2 eggs

Ingredients for Lemon Icing:

  • 90g of icing sugar
  • Additional lemon zest for garnish
  • 2 tablespoons of lemon juice


  1. Preheat the oven to 180掳C (350掳F). Grease and flour a loaf pan or a round cake tin.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, cream together the softened butter and sugar until the mixture is light and fluffy.
  3. Add the tablespoon of lemon zest to the creamed sugar and butter, and mix well.
  4. Beat the eggs into the mixture one at a time, ensuring each is well incorporated before adding the next.
  5. Stir in the lemon juice.
  6. In a separate bowl, sift together the flour, a pinch of salt, and the baking powder.
  7. Gradually fold the dry ingredients into the wet mixture until just combined; be careful not to overmix.
  8. Pour the cake batter into the prepared pan, smoothing the top with a spatula.
  9. Bake in the preheated oven for 45-50 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
  10. Allow the cake to cool in the pan for 10 minutes, then transfer it to a wire rack to cool completely.

While the cake is cooling, prepare the Lemon Icing:

  1. In a small bowl, whisk together the icing sugar, additional lemon zest, and lemon juice until smooth. Adjust the consistency with a little extra lemon juice if needed; the icing should be pourable but not too runny.
  2. Once the cake is cool, drizzle the icing over the top, allowing it to drip down the sides.
  3. Garnish with extra lemon zest if desired.
  4. Let the icing set before cutting the cake into slices to serve.

Enjoy your delicious homemade lemon cake with a sweet and tangy lemon icing!
