This is one of the best and simple cake I ever had. It is extremely soft and fluffy.
Lemon Buttermilk Cake
1 ¾ cup all-purpose flour
1 cup sugar
½ cup butter (I used buttery taste sunflower oil spread)
1 tbsp boiling water
½ tsp baking powder
¼ tsp baking soda
½ tsp salt
½ cup buttermilk (3 tbsp yogurt + enough water to make ½ cup)
Grated lemon zest of 1 lemon (1 tbsp or more)
Lemon juice of 1 lemon (4 tbsp)
Sieve flour, baking soda and baking powder. Add salt.
Beat butter and sugar for a few minutes. Add boiling water and beat again.
Add one egg at a time and mix well.
Add lemon zest and lemon juice and mix.
Add flour alternately with buttermilk in 3 additions, ending with flour.
Pour into a baking pan lined with butter paper.
Bake in a preheated oven at 150 degree Celsius for 25-30 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean when inserted in the center of the cake.
Let it cool before you slice.
