Sometimes this is just what you need, something simple, unfussy which will calm your sweet tooth.
This is a very nice recipe to have at hand and it’s very quick to put together.
2 cups flour
4 cups plain flour
4 tsp. baking powder
2 cups milk
zest of 1 lemon
Cream the sugar and the butter (which should be very soft). Add the eggs one at a time while you continue whisking.
Sift the flour and the baking powder over the mixture.
Mix with a spatula, slowly incorporating all the ingredients while you gradually add the milk as you sift the flour. Add the lemon zest or vanilla extract.
Bake at 180 C for 45-50 minutes.
