Juicy Lemon Cake
« on: January 09, 2010, 12:37:30 am »
JUICY LEMON CAKE



300 grams of flour
300 grams Sugar
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 packet of Vanilla Sugar (2 Teaspoons Homemade!)
4 eggs
150 grams of Oil
150 grams of sparkling water (or 7 up or sprite)
50 grams of Lemon Juice
Zest

Preparation

Place the flour, baking powder and sugar in Thermomix and programs 8 seconds / Level 4.
Add all the remaining ingredients and  Program 2 minutes / Level 4.
Befits down to the midpoint of the beat with the help of the spatula!
Now just place the dough in a well greased  (hope you say it like this :D)Cake Pan and Bake in preheated oven 180 for 50 minutes!

The result is WONDERFUL - A Super juicy cake even after a few days (when there is anything left of course ;))
I did a Orange version as well but prefer the Lemon....

katesjoy -  It is delish!!  Will definitely be making this on a regular basis.

huilink - I followed the instructions exactly, except that I cut down on the sugar to 200g (since I was using 7 up), but I'm not sure what went wrong. It came out very hard. I thought it wasn't cooked enough, so popped it back into the oven for another half an hour, but still came out the same. I wonder if it will be better if I used more baking powder?

I think the yeast is a mistake  ;)

Thanks Isi - great little recipe.

yes, agree Tebasile (Now I get it - your name written backwards  :-)) - talk about slow !!!  :o :o ) - should be the baking powder not yeast (probably translator tool saying yeast for leaving ?)

Thanks  again Isi. You have really been busy and we appreciate it. I love cakes that keep for a while as there are only 3 of us to eat them.
May all dairy items in your fridge be of questionable vintage.

Sorry guys, :D
So I see that yeast means fresh baking powder!!! here in Portugal the name is the same - just change in powder or fresh
I will change it in a bit!!!

 ??? l've made it a couple of times now with sparkling water huilink and it has been perfect (the first time l had to put it back in the oven for a few more minutes as it was not quite done).  wouldn't have thought 7up would make a difference though ???

Another one to try! Thanks isi!
I wouldn't use 7Up as it has acids and all sorts of additives that could interfere with the ingredients in the recipe.
A great cook is one who can rustle up a fabulous family meal with some freezer burnt chops, wilted carrots, sprouting potatoes and cabbage that's gone brown on the cut edges.

huilink,
too bad you had not had a good result! >:(
I can not imagine what it was a time I do this cake for so long and never such a thing happen!
If you have courage you can perhaps try again - because it is a really deliciouse cake :)
