Madelon's Lemmon cake Recipe:

Madelon's great lemmoncake

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

to do:
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!
Groetjes Madelon

    Volens mij komt er weer een superleuk projectje aan, te zien aan het borduursel en de stof en de lintjes. Succes hoor.

  8. Dear Heleen and Cory, Your posts are truly a breath of spring. I love when you reveal what's inside your lovely boxes. I love when you share bits of your home and studio. I especially love when you share polka dots and tulips. Sigh, this truly is the most inspiring place to be! Happy Spring! Elizabeth

  14. Wat ziet dat er gezellig uit! Jammer dat ik niet klein ben anders wilde ik ook van die schoenen.
    Misschien zag je al dat ik de laatste tas met de vogeltjes bestelde? Ik vind hem super leuk!!! Ook het model lijkt me handig. Ik kijk er erg naar uit.

  18. Dat ziet er heerlijk uit en helemaal van zo'n mooi polka dot servies.
    De schoentjes zijn ook enig. Als mijn dochter nog die leeftijd had, dan zouden die boven aan haar wensenlijstje staan.
