FATE Lemon Cake

  • RECIPE MAKES: 20 squares (5cm x 5cm)
  • PREP TIME: 10 min
  • COOK TIME: 30 min

This cake is lovely and so easy to make. By using lemon zest in the cake, and lemon juice as a topping it is light and deliciously sweet and tangy! Use a baking tin measuring approx. 26cm x 17cm x 3cm deep

step 1

Preheat the oven to 190˚C.

step 2

Place the Fate Low Protein Cake Mix into a mixing bowl. Add the lemon rind, margarine and water. Mix quickly with a wire whisk for 1 minute. Place the mixture into the greased and lined cake tin, and use a spoon to spread the mixture to the edges of the tin. Bake for 20-25mins until risen and firm.

step 3

Take out of the oven and remove from the tin onto a wire rack. If possible, turn the cake over so that the top is at the top. Leave to cool for a couple of minutes, while you prepare the topping.

step 4

Place the granulated sugar into a mixing bowl, and add enough lemon juice so that all the sugar is moistened with the juice, but not enough to dissolve it. Give it a stir, and spoon it onto the top of the warm cake. Leave to cool completely before cutting into squares.
