  • 4oz self raising flour
  • 4oz margerine
  • 4oz caster sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 lemon
  • 3oz icing sugar

Lightly grease and base line a 7″ cake tin.  Put the oven on 180c.

Bake in the centre of the oven for about 20 minutes. The cake should be risen, slightly golden and if you put a skewer in it should come out clean. Cool for 15 minutes in the tin on a wire rack. To make the icing mix 3 oz of icing sugar in a bowl with just enough of the squeezed lemon juice to mix into a loose paste. Drizzle on the top of the cake. Gorgeous with a cup of tea!
