Recently I decided to try something new for myself when I was preparing cake one time to take to a relatives house. So I decided to come up with a whole new different type of cake that involves Lemons. I am a huge fan of Lemons and It is such a good source of Vitamins and it helps the immune system. The Lemon cakes major flavour is definitely the Lemon and it has to have the Sweet/Sour Lemony taste to it. Now here is my famous recipe.
2 Juicy big or Large fresh Lemons – If you like the extra Lemon taste add one more if you life.
1 teaspoon of Vanilla Extract or Vanilla
Preparing the Lemon:
Now before squeezing the lemon I suggest you wash the lemons really well because were going to be using the Yellow skin to zest it.
Before squeezing the Lemons, take a zester and put the lemon skin that is ZESTED in a separate bowl. Zest until you see the white core of the Lemons, but make sure its not so so delicate to squeeze.
Now in a Lemon squeezer, make sure all the liquid juices are out of the Lemon. becareful for the seeds that they dont go into the juice.
Now put the Zest with the Lemon juice for about 5-10 minutes until soaked together until you start with the Cake batter preparations..
Preparing the Cake Batter:
Crack open 6 large eggs into the cake making bowl – for best results use the machine.
Start the machine and make sure the eggs are fully beaten and make sure it starts to turn into a light creamy yellowing colour.
Add the LEMONS/LEMON ZEST
Then put the teaspoon of Vanilla
After put 1 to 2 cups of Sugar
1 cup of Milk
1 to 2 Tablespoons of Baking powder
2 cups of Flour — check consistency. If its way too watery put about half a cup more of flour if it’s a little denser just leave it be.
Dont stop the machine until everything is mixed well together –
To prepare the Cake Baking Pan…
Make sure the Cake baking pan is deep.
Spray the pan with OLIVE OR CANOLA OIL with the cooking spray and make sure you have it all covered….
Add the Cake batter to the PAN Let the cake batter settle until your OVEN heats up
Pre-heat your oven to 350
When your oven is pre-heated, put the Lemon Zest Cake in.
It should be done in an hour or so Depends on the strength of your oven. — Now to know its been done, just stick a tooth pick inside. If it comes out clear, its done, if it sticks to the toothpick it still needs to be done. Make sure its Gold Brown on top.
Now before taking the cake out of the pan, let it cool off then put it onto a dessert plate. There you have it!
Yummers! Lemon is one of my favorite flavors.
This sounds really good. I will have to try it soon!
My understanding of baking is that it’s a science, so a recipe that calls for “1-2 cups of sugar” is confusing to me. Is it one cup or two? Is it one tablespoon or two of baking powder? All my baking recipes are very exact.
M – I suspect that perhaps Talin means 1 or 2 cups depending on the level of sweetness that you prefer. Re: baking powder, personally, I would just use 1 tablespoon. 2 would be quite a lot! While I’m at it, I’d switch out the olive oil or canola oil for butter to coat the cake pan. Both will have a pretty significant taste attached to them which may overpower the lemon. I’m a huge fan of baking and baked goods but sometimes I need to tweak recipes a bit to make them work for me. Good luck!
It always amazes me how lemon can make such good dessert. I will have to try this. Thank you for sharing.
