We are having a real Dutch sisters tea time,
with home made lemmon cake,
made by one of Dutch Sisters daughters, Madelon, and vanilla ice.
(you can find this Madelon's lemmon cake recipe at the end of this post)
Of course with a special guest on a chair,
With special shoes,
And cute socks.
After drinking tea there was time to spent with 'Bear'
(who enjoyed the attention)
She's such an adorable guest!
And after the tea visit there was time to start some Dutch Sisters sewing!
Have a lovely day everyone,
With lots of tea, cake and special guests!
Madelon's Lemmon cake Recipe:
140 grams butter, softened
140 grams of fine table sugar
2 large eggs
grated zest of 1 untreated lemon
140 grams self raising flour
4 tablespoons fine sugar
freshly squeezed juice of 1 lemon
a cake tin lined with greaseproof paper
Mix the butter and sugar in a large bowl light and pale yellow. Mix in the eggs one by one and mix in the citroenraspsel. Sieve the flour and spatula it through the mixture well. Scoop the mixture into the lined cake tin and smooth it out. Bake about 20 minutes in a preheated oven at 180 degreece until cake is golden brown.
Put the cake on a wire rack and prick the entire top with a skewer. Sprinkle top of cake with the spoon of sugar for the glaze. Quickly mix in a bowl the remaining sugar with the lemon juice and pour over the cake. let the cake cool in the tin. pay it off gently from the pan and serve.
It's great with a bit of vanilla ice and a piece of dark chocolate!
Enjoy making and eating!
