Keyword: cake, lemon, traybake
Grated rind of a lemon
For the icing
Juice of 1 lemon
Pre heat the oven to 180C / 160C Fan
Get your child to grease a 30 x 23 cm tin with a little butter then line the with baking paper.
Mix all the ingredients together
Measure the flour, sugar and butter and baking powder into your bowl/mixer.
Crack the eggs into a separate bowl, then add into your mixture. Add the milk.
Using the small side of your grater, grate the rind of the lemon and add to the bowl. Squeeze your lemon juice into a small bowl and kept it aside to use in the icing later.
Mix everything together until it’s well blended.
Bake the lemon slice
Pour the mixture into your tin and level the top with a spatula.
Bake in the oven for 35-40 minutes or until the cake has shrunk away from the sides of the tin and springs back when pressed gently with your fingers.
Leave to cool in the tin.
Ice the lemon slice
Take your bowl of lemon juice and add some icing sugar until you have a nice runny consistency. Spread it out over your cake. We also added a drop of yellow food colour to the last of the icing in the bowl before drizzling that over the top. Leave it to set before cutting.
