I'm so sorry, I'm totally late with this post today. Hubs became a cleaning maniac and I was sitting here, feeling guilty. Then I cleaned the kitchen instead of writing this post. Now his cleaning maniac is over and I have the time to share this tasty cake recipe with you. Because today is World Baking Day!
My sister-in-law used a cake mix called "Zitronen Wolke (ger)" from Dr. Oetker a few times. It's an airy kind of lemon pound cake which is baked with cream instead of butter or margarine. And Hubs, not really a fan of cakes, loves it.
There is only one problem: I'm not a fan of cake mixes. That's why I start my own test kitchen and I found a recipe that is approximately to it.
200 ml Cream
200 g Sugar
100 g Flour
100 g Starch
Lemon zest (from 1 lemon)
2 Tbsp Lemon juice
15 g Baking Powder
1 pn Salt
- Preheat the oven to 170 ° C (upper and lower heat) and prepare the cake pan.
- Separate the eggs and beat the eggwhites until stiff. Put it aside, you'll need it later.
- Mix the egg yolk with the sugar until it's quite light. Then mix the cream in.
- Mix the dry ingredients together and stir it in the egg-cream-mix.
- Fold in the beaten egg whites.
- Bake it ca. 45–50 min. Use a wooden tooth pick to controll it. Prick in the middle of the cake. When there's no cake left on the tooth pick, you can take it out of the oven.
- Let the cake cool down and sprinkle it with sugar powder before serving.
It's a simple, tasty and versatile cake. I'll try the following variants: chocolate, marble and a cocktail one: Tequila Sunrise. Simply change the lemon ingredients with chocolate, orange or something else. Some ideas for more variants?
Love, Mel … xoxo
