Hey! It’s kitchen time, are you ready? Who me? I was born ready. Being a sweet tooth mama is very cool and enjoyable for the kids until they get cavities. My mum loved baking, I believe she still does, only that her sweet little girls (even the boys) succeeded her in the baking game. I wasn’t that much of a baking fan, mostly I would gladly devour what my siblings had made. I hopped into the baking bandwagon after I got married (you gotta spoil the guy man!). See getting married has to be the best thing that happened to anyone, I am a tried and true testimonial guys.
OFF THE RECORD:-Do not hang around without any plans please. If you are dating someone make sure you getting married very soon I mean like yesterday, yeah it’s that serious. There is no much time, if you are not planning to put a ring on it let the person go.
I can be a chatterbox sometimes pardon me. Let’s get into the cake business shall we?
Easiest and Best (I am not kidding it’s the best I’ve ever eaten) Lemon Cake
- 175g butter or margarine
- 175g sugar
- 3 eggs
- 175g self-raising flour
- 2 lemons
For the icing
- 1/2 lemon
- 200g icing sugar
- 100g butter or margarine
Preheat the oven to 180C. Grease a baking tin or line with non-stick baking paper.
Personally greasing is my choice.
Place the butter/margarine and sugar in a bowl until thick and pale.
Beat the 3 eggs and add to the bowl, then sift in the flour gradually.
Finely grate the zest from the 2 lemons into the bowl, and squeeze 1 tbsp lemon juice and add.
Beat together for about 2 minutes, until the mixture is light and fluffy.
Put the mixture into the tins and spread level.
(not very well done but good enough, my little one had woken up already so I had to hurry)
Bake for 15 or more minutes or until firm and golden, and leave to cool for about 10 minutes.
It’s way more delicious than it looks…
(I am not an icing fan, if you are go ahead.) To make the icing, beat the butter with the icing sugar until light and fluffy, and squeeze 1 tbsp lemon juice into the mixture.
Spread the icing over the top of the cake.

Enjoy the sweetest simple cake ever! As always, let me know what you think.
And I met her; she was a member of a church up there. And she asked me to go to church with her, and I did. And I kept going with her a long time, and I—I thought she was pretty. She was a real girl, so I… But the only thing was, I’d been going with her for about a year and something, and I knew a girl like that, I couldn’t take up of her time if I wasn’t going to get married, so I’d have to let somebody else that wanted to get married have her, and that was going to be an awful spot to pull away for me.
64 Notice, then what happened? I thought, “Well now, I’ve got to ask her, and I just haven’t got the heart to ask her. I don’t know why. I’ve got to let her go if she won’t marry me.
