Equipment

  • handmixer
  • oven
  • kitchen scale

Ingredients
  

  • 200 gr flour
  • 10 gr yeast dry yeast
  • 150 gr sugar I have used birch sugar
  • 8 gr vanilla sugar 1 little bag
  • 50 gr olive oil neutral taste, not too strong
  • 125 gr gesmolten boter
  • 85 gr lemon juice about 2 medium sized lemons
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 tspoon baking soda
  • zest of 1 lemon

the icing

  • 125 gr icing sugar
  • 2 tblspoon lemon juice
  • 1 lemon to decorate
  • mint leaves to decorate

Instructions
 

  • Heat the oven to 170º
  • First we mix all the dry ingredients such as the flour, sugar, yeast, baking soda, salt and vanilla sugar.
  • Melt the butter over low heat. Don't let it get too hot, just melt.
  • Beat the eggs with the hand mixer. Then mix them with the oil, melted butter, lemon juice and zest.
  • Add this mixture to the dry ingredients and mix well.
  • Spread a baking pan with oil or butter and pour in the dough. Make sure the dough is not higher than +/- 1.5 cm below the edge because the cake will rise during baking. Place in the preheated oven and bake for 40 – 45 minutes at 170º. Then check with a skewer whether the cake is done inside. (It is fully baked when no dough sticks to the skewer) Let it cool down.

Making the icing

  • Put a small pan on a low heat and add the lemon juice and sugar. Mix well until you have a homogeneous, slightly liquid syrup. Pour this over the cooled cake.
  • As an extra decoration I baked and sugared fine slices of lemon so that they caramelize a little. Extra mint leaves provide a fresh green touch.

Notes

I have already baked a lot of lemon cakes and so several recipes have already preceded. But this one has a nice intense taste and the lemon icing together with the mint provide a fresh touch. Usually I make it on a Sunday morning and by Monday it is completely gone … He seems to evaporate 😉
