sour cream lemon cakerating:
I had this on my first day of my first job in Wellington. It was a colleague's birthday and another colleague had made this cake to celebrate. She deliberately undercooked it a little so that it remained moist inside. Delicious.
2 cups sugar (250g)
2tsp lemon rind
250g sour cream
2 cups flour (250g)
2 tsp baking powder
Cream butter and sugar together, add eggs, lemon rind and sour cream. Blend well, gently fold in flour and baking powder.
Place in a 25cm cake tin. Bake at 180 degC for 50 - 60 mins.
When the cake comes out of the oven pour juice of 1 lemon combined with 3 tsp sugar onto the hot cake. Cover with a few clean tea towels and leave to cool.
