Welcome to Mum&sons

My two eldest boys challenged me to start a cooking blog with simple recipes that we can cook together - and my youngest one has now joined in. I am hoping they pick up some cooking and photograph skills... or that at least they learn to design and run a blog.


This is a very easy cake. We have tried and mixed various recipes. You need:
- 225 g butter (soft)
- 225 g sugar
- 225 g plain flour
- 3 eggs
- one teaspoon of baking powder
- 100 ml milk
- juice and zest of two lemons

For the topping:
- juice of two more lemons
- 150 gr sugar

Preheat the oven at 170 degrees. Beat all the ingredients of the cake together. Put the mixture into a greased and lined loaf tray. Bake for 40 minutes.

Meanwhile mix the lemons and sugar for the toping. When the cake is ready, wait for 10 minutes and pour the syrup on top.
