Zesty Lemon Cake by claremanson Zesty Lemon Cake by claremanson
A refreshing gluten free lemon zest sponge with a lemon zest butter cream.

One of my favourite ways to use up lemons is to put it in either a cake or lemonade, today I chose cake as it is still a little too cold for lemonade. Nothing in your face big and fancy just a nice, simple cake.

As always I used my basic cake recipe jsut added the zest of one lemon to the cake mix and a littlre more plus lemon juice to taste in the butter cream.

TIPS:
:bulletgreen: When grating lemon zest, do not grate the bitter white, it is not very nice so after a couple of grates check the lemon and rotate.
:bulletgreen: Taste test! It's easier to add more than take away so when making the butter cream add the zest and juice just a little at a time, taste test (with a clean spoon then wash before testing again!) then repeat. Try not to make it too strong though as remember you already have lemon in the sponge.
:bulletgreen: As with most homemade cake, best eaten on day of baking for maximum soft and moist taste and texture.

I'm actually not a fan of lemon cake. XD

Mostly because my dad loves it so much and I have to make it really often. I've gotten so sick of it. x.x
