Ingredients

For the icing

Method

  • STEP 1

    Heat oven to 180C/160C fan/gas 4. Grease and line the base of a 20cm square deep cake tin (or if using a decorative tin like ours, grease well).

  • STEP 2

    In a bowl, beat the butter and sugar until fluffy. Add the rest of the ingredients and beat until combined. Spoon into the tin and smooth over the top. Bake for 40-45 mins. Cool in the tin for 10 mins, then turn out, peel off the parchment and leave to cool on a wire rack.

  • STEP 3

    Sift the icing sugar into a bowl. Beat in the lemon juice to make a runny icing. Pour over the cake and leave to set.

RECIPE TIPS
TRANSPORTING THE CAKE

If taking this cake away, transport it in an upturned biscuit or cake tin, so the cake sits on the lid. This will make it much easier to slice when you arrive at your destination.
