Lovely Lemon Cake

This is a lovely cake indeed. It's easy to make and turns out beautiful every time. And because I love anything with lemon, it's one of my favorites.

The darker spots effect adds a bit of flair to an otherwise very simple cake, and it's achieved with a "partial" crumble. Let me explain it to you below.


Lovely Lemon Cake recipe


Ingredients for the cake: 
  • 1 1/2 cups of flour 
  • 1 egg
  • 1 large lemon (zest + juice)
  • 3/4 cup of sugar
  • 2 tablespoons of butter
  • 2 teaspoons of baking powder 
  • 1 Greek yogurt
Ingredients for the crumble (optional): 
  • 1/2 cup of flour
  • 1/4 cup of sugar
  • 2 tablespoons of butter
I used a 24 x 24 cm cake pan, because I like this cake more on the thin side, so these quantities only allow for the "partial" crumble I mentioned before. If you want a full crumble with a similar sized cake pan, just double the amounts.

Instructions:
  • Mix all ingredients of the cake together. I'm a practical girl, so I don't bother a lot with a specific order in which to add the ingredients, though out of habit for this cake I usually start with the egg and the sugar and end with the lemon zest and the lemon juice.

  • Line a cake pan with a sheet of greased parchment paper and pour the cake batter into it

  • In a separate bowl, mix the ingredients for the crumble until you have, literally, small crumbs of butter covered in flour and sugar

  • Spread little clumps of the crumble here and there over the cake batter (if you're going for a full crumble, spread it evenly over the batter)
  • Bake at 200ยบ C for about 30 minutes until it turns a nice golden color.

  • Cut into squares and serve.

In this recipe I have tried to adjust amounts to cups instead of grams, to make it easier for everyone, since in previous posts I had a few people asking about conversions. Hopefully this time it will work for everyone, but if you still have questions, just let me know.

Happy Monday,
