  • Bowl
  • Digital Food Scale
  • 30 cm baking mold

  • 100 grams Sugar
  • 100 grams Cake flour
  • 1 gram Salt
  • 2 grams Baking Powder
  • 1 Lemon
  • 15 grams Powdered Sugar

  • Start with grating the zest of a whole lemon and put it aside.
  • Measure 100 grams of Sugar and add this to the lemon zest. Mix this together.
  • Measure 100 grams of unsalted butter and beat the butter with a kitchen machine until it becomes soft.
  • Add half of the lemon and sugar mix to the butter and mix everything together.
  • Add the rest of the lemon and sugar mix.
  • Add two eggs and 1 gram of salt and mix everything together. I recommend to add the egg mix little by little (7 times)
  • Measuring 100 grams of cake flour and 2 grams of baking powder. Use a sieve when adding this to the mixture.
  • Mix everything until you get a smooth batter. Add the 15 ml of lemon juice to the mixture.
  • Get your baking mold and use baking paper on the inside.
  • Preheat the oven to 150 degrees Celsius
  • Pour the mix into the baking mold
  • Bake the cake for 60 minutes. When the cake is baked let it rest for 30 minutes to cool down.
  • When the cake is cooled down get the cake out of the baking tin.
  • For the cake topping you need 15 grams of sugar and 30 millilitres of lemon juice. Mix this together until you get a paste.
  • Use a skewer to poke holes in the cake. Spread the sugar/lemon juice mix over the cake and let it dry for 25 minutes.
  • Get a bowl and add 45 grams of powdered sugar and 15 millilitres of lemon juice. Mix everything together until you get a paste.
  • Glaze the cake and let it dry for 20 minutes. Enjoy the Lemon Pound Cake!
