This is an easy to make, moist, fresh loaf that is a delight to eat just on its own.

Serves: 8 

  • 120g butter
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup plain flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup caster sugar
  • 1 cup self raising flour
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • grated rind and juice large lemon
  • 1/4 cup caster sugar (extra)
  • 1/4 cup chopped nuts (optional)

Preparation:15min  ›  Cook:45min  ›  Extra time:1hour cooling  ›  Ready in:2hours 

  1. Cream butter and cup of sugar, adding the eggs one at a time. Beat well.
  2. Sift flours and salt together and add to the buttery mixture, alternating with the milk. Add the lemon rind (and nuts if desired).
  3. Pour into a well greased loaf tin and bake in a moderate (350 degrees F or 180 degrees C) oven for approximately 45 minutes.

light and lemony, put second one back in oven for a couple of minutes under a med heat grill, and it made the topping beautifully crunchy. - 04 Sep 2012
