    I have never been a fan of lemon flavour. I don’t really know why but it has never been something I particularly liked. That changed when I tasted the lemon cake, that you see here today! I went to lunch with my grandma a couple of weeks ago and the chef had prepared this beautiful lemon cake which was so fluffy and tasty! Since I love to bake, I had to ask for the recipe and luckily, he wrote it down for me. Scroll down to find out how you make it!

    Ingredients

    300 grams sugar
    300 grams butter
    300 grams flour
    6 eggs
    1 table spoon vanilla sugar or vanilla essence
    1 table spoon baking powder
    2 organic lemons (juice and zest)

    Instructions

    • Grease a round baking tin with butter or sunflower seed oil.
    • Cream together the butter, sugar and vanilla essence/sugar until it is fluffy.
    • Add the six eggs slowly, one at a time and mix everything.
    • Add the juice of the lemons and grate the lemon zest.
    • Sieve the flour and baking powder and add it to the wet mixture.
    • Stir it together quickly (make sure you don’t lose the fluffiness of the wet mixture).
    • Bake it for 20-30 minutes at 175° Celsius (350° Fahrenheit) until the cake raises and a toothpick comes out clean.

    I like to serve my lemon cake with a fresh minty lemonade and a little bit of icing sugar on top. It also goes along great with coffee, tea and as a cheeky little breakfast treat on the weekends. I hope you enjoy!

    What is your favourite treat for spring?

    Ich war noch nie ein großer Fan von Zitronen. Ich verwende die Frucht oft zum Kochen, bin aber vom eigentlichen Geruch nicht so begeistert. Das Ganze hat sich geändert, als ich vor einigen Wochen mit meiner Oma zu Mittag gegessen habe. Der Koch hatte damals einen Zitronenkuchen serviert, der wahnsinnig flaumig und schmackhaft war. Ich liebe es, zu backen, daher musste ich gleich nach dem Rezept fragen und den Kuchen zu Hause nachmachen. Glücklicherweise schmeckt der Kuchen genauso gut, wie ich ihn in Erinnerung hatte und deswegen möchte ich das Rezept heute mit euch teilen!

    Zutaten
    300 Gramm Zucker
    300 Gramm Butter
    300 Gramm Mehl
    6 Eier
    1 Esslöffel Vanillezucker oder Vanilleessence
    1 Esslöffel Backpulver
    2 Bio Zitronen (Saft und Schale)

    Zubereitung

    • Eine runde Kuchenform mit Butter oder Öl einfetten.
    • Die Butter, den Zucker und den Vanillezucker flaumig rühren.
    • Die sechs Eier nach und nach zugeben und weiter mischen.
    • Nun den Saft der Zitrone dazu pressen und die Schalen hinein reiben.
    • Das Mehl und das Backpulver sieben und zur nassen Masse geben. Alles schnell unterheben, damit die Flaumigkeit nicht verloren geht.
    • Den Kuchen für 20 bis 30 Minuten bei 175° Celsius in das Backrohr geben.

    Ich serviere den Kuchen am liebsten mit frischer Minzlimonade und ein bisschen Puderzucker. Er schmeckt auch super mit Kaffee und Tee oder zum Frühstück am Wochenende. Ich hoffe, ihr probiert das Rezept auch einmal zu Hause aus!

    Welche (Süß)Speise ist eure liebste für den Frühling?
