A wee update from the land of cookery for you to enjoy. This time I didn't do any of the cooking though, but I thought that to keep the blog ticking over I'd put up a piece on one of the other residents of Seon Na Glen, Pete, who baked a lemon drizzle cake today...
For the cake you will need:
- 225g self raising flour
- 225g caster sugar
- 225g butter
- 4 eggs
- 1 lemon
- 50g icing sugar
First beat the flour, sugar, butter and eggs together. The lovely Pete is demonstrating here.
Put the cake into an oven that has been preheated to 180°C and bake for around half an hour.
Once the cake has baked, remove it from the oven and allow to sit for a few minutes. Once slightly cooled, prick it all over with a fork to allow you to pour over the lemon drizzle.
To make the drizzle, combine the juice from the lemon with the icing sugar. Mix it together well.
- Still working on that Christmas menu...
- Back down to England for a week in August and I have a couple of plans for some blogs that'll result from that week.
