It is time for a classic and basic recipe.
So far there are not a lot of basic recipes on Icing Sugar, but I decided to change this. Although i like it a lot to experiment with crazy flavors or incorporate funny ideas into my baking, sometimes it is good to get back to basic. So every now and than I want to present to you some very basic and classic recipes. Great and simple on their own, but still able to be turned into something great! Just add some icing or frosting on the top or add some nuts or fruits into the cake batter and you will end up with a much more sophisticated version of this cake. Or just enjoy it plain as it is, because sometimes simple is just the best.
You see, with this basic recipe you can go either way!
I love the hint of tartness the lemon adds to this cake. Feel free to make it as tart as you like by adding more lemon zest or additionally add the lemon juice as well! Feel free to play around with this recipe to your liking 😉 Enjoy!
