A lovely light lemon cake, very simple to make when you don't feel like making something more elaborate. It's good either with or without icing.


Serves: 10 

  • 2 cups (250g) cake flour
  • 1 1/4 cups (270g) white sugar
  • 3 teaspoons baking powder
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 3 egg whites
  • 1 cup (250ml) milk
  • 1 teaspoon lemon essence
  • 1/2 cup copha

  1. Preheat oven to 190 degrees C. Lightly grease and flour two 20cm round cake tins.
  2. Sift together the flour, 1 cup of the sugar, the baking powder and the salt.
  3. Beat the egg whites until stiff but still moist. Gradually beat in 1/4 cup sugar until soft peaks are formed.
  4. Add the milk, lemon essence and copha to the flour mixture, beat for 2 minutes, scraping bowl while beating. Fold in the egg whites and pour batter into prepared pans.
