Weekend Baking | Lemon & Orange Loaf Cake


After the snow at the beginning of the week (where did that come from?) yesterday was really lovely and so I took the inspiration from the sunshine and baked this lemon and orange loaf cake. Read on to find out the recipe...

Ingredients
Zest of two lemons
Zest of one orange
3 Medium Eggs
190g of Unsalted Butter
150g of Self Raising Flour
115g of Plain Flour
2tbsps of Lemon Juice
1tbsps of Orange Juice
2tbsps of Milk

Method
1) Preheat your oven to 180° and grease and line a medium loaf tin
2) Mix the butter, sugar, lemon and orange zests together then add eggs
3) Gently stir in the flours, the mixture should form into quite a thick batter
4) Add the lemon juice, orange juice and the milk and mix until the batter is thinner and smooth
5) Bake for one hour or until golden brown
6) Serve and enjoy!






Thanks for reading :)
