Lemon has got its unique taste and aroma.This cake is super soft inside and crispy outside. Adding lemon zest and drizzling with lemon syrup is a real twist which makes the cake aromatic. This cake is perfect with evening tea.
Butter    100 gms (softened)
Maida    100 gms
Sugar     100 gms (powdered)
Eggs       2 nos
Milk       2Tbsp (optional)
Baking Powder  1 tsp
Vanilla essence   2 tsp
Grated Zest of  one lemon 
For the drizzle :
Lemon juice   from 2 lemons
Powdered sugar    1/2 cup
Preheat the oven @ 180*C. Grease and flour the baking tin.
Seive maida and baking powder 2 times.
Beat butter and sugar till light and fluffy. Add eggs one by one and beat till  the mixture is in pale yellow colour.Add lemon zest and essence.
Add maida little by little and mix into the batter by cut and fold method. Pour into the baking tin and bake for 25 mins.
Mix lemon juice and sugar well. Cool the cake and  poke the cake randomly  with the toothpick. Pour the grizzle all over the cake. This gives a nice glaze and lemony flavour to the cake. The cake will taste good without the drizzle also.
