Guys, this is hands down the best lemon cake ever! So incredibly juicy and tasty!
- 2 1/3 cups flour
- 1 1/4 cups sugar
- 1 tsp lemon zest
- 1 tsp baking powder
- 1 good pinch of salt
- 1 packet of vanilla sugar
- 3 tbsp oil
- 3 tbsp milk
- 3 eggs
- 1/3 cup lemon juice
- 3/4 cup softened butter
- 3 1/2 tbsp sparkling water
- 3 1/2 tbsp softened butter for piping
- 1 2/3 cups powdered sugar
- A small splash of lemon juice
Preheat your oven to 320°F (160°C) fan (356°F or 180°C conventional).
Mix all the cake ingredients except the sparkling water until you get a creamy batter. Finally, gently fold in the sparkling water.
Pour the batter into a greased loaf pan (about 10 inches long and 4 inches wide). Use a piping bag to pipe a line of softened butter right down the middle of the batter (this helps the cake to split evenly down the center while baking).
Bake the lemon cake for about 1 hour. Use a toothpick to check if it's fully baked.
For the glaze, simply whisk together the powdered sugar and a splash of lemon juice until smooth, then spread it on the cake. Enjoy your zesty treat!
