Ingredients

    For the Cake
  • 3 cups (300g) cake flour*
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • Zest of 1 lemon
  • 4 large eggs, room temperature
  • 1 and 1/2 cups (300g) caster sugar/granulated sugar
  • 1/4 cup (60ml) lemon juice
  • 3/4 cup (180ml) vegetable oil
  • 1 cup (240ml) buttermilk, room temperature
  • For the Icing
  • 1 cup (125g) icing sugar
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice
  • 4 tablespoons heavy cream

Instructions

    For the Cake
  1. Preheat the oven to 180C/350F/Gas 4. Grease a 10-inch bundt pan, and set aside.
  2. Whisk together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and lemon zest. Set aside.
  3. Whisk together the eggs. Add the sugar, and whisk until combined. Add the lemon juice and vegetable oil, and whisk until combined. Mix in the dry ingredients, alternating with the buttermilk.
  4. Pour the batter into the prepared bundt pan and bake for 45 - 50 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the centre comes out clean with moist crumbs. Let cool in the pan for 15 minutes before removing and letting cool completely on a wire rack.
  5. For the Icing
  6. Whisk together the icing sugar, lemon extract, and heavy cream. Add more icing sugar if too runny, or more cream if too thick. The icing should be fairly thick, but pourable. Drizzle over the cooled cake, and serve.

Notes

*Instead of cake flour, weigh out 3 cups (375g) of plain/all-purpose flour, remove 6 tablespoons, and replace with 6 tablespoons of cornflour/cornstarch. Sift well.

    Absolutely lovely cake. The Lemon is so refreshing and the cake keeps moist for days. Made it to share with my sister – she would like it again! Will be in the ‘make often’ list of best cakes.
