So I really felt like baking and I did as soon as I woke up 🙂 I guess you could call me morning person 🙂
So today I decided to make lemon semolina cake 🙂 initially I wanted to make Nigella’s lemon polenta cake but we had no polenta so I had to resort to this semolina cake 🙂 *Thanks Shinyprettythings for making me crave this!
To make it you will need:
1 cup castor sugar
125 g of butter/margarine
1 Tablespoon lemon rind/orange rind (I didn’t have much lemons so I had to use a bit of orange ;))
2/3 cup of semolina
1 1/2 cups of Self raising flour
1/2 cup of milk
Lemon syrup : 1 cup of castor sugar, 1/2 cup of cold water and 1/4 cup of lemon juice
Preheat oven 180 Degrees.
Cream butter, sugar and lemon rind. Add the 2 eggs one by one. Then add the semolina, SR flour and milk.
Pour into a lined cake tin and bake for approx 35 to 45 min depending on your oven.
Lemon syrup – put the sugar, water and juice and boil over a stove until thickens.
Once the cake is out of the oven, poke all over with a skewer and then pour half of the lemon syrup over it. This will cause the lemon goodness to seep into the holes and into the cake making it moist and delish! 😉 and voila you’re done 🙂
Happy Sunday everyone! Any good recipes to share? I would love to hear them!
Melbourne weather is crazy at the moment! Rainy when it was boiling this morning!
