Simple but effective



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.




200g butter

2 cups flour

4 cups plain flour

4 tsp. baking powder

2 cups milk

zest of 1 lemon

4 eggs



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.
