For Day 3, Week 3 of BM #46, here is a dessert to finish off this series of Lemon based recipes. 

I found that the cake didn't rise as much as I would have expected. But the cake was But the lemony drizzle made up for it :). I wasn't able to get any decent pictures of the sliced cake and so those pictures would have to wait for another day!

Ingredients - 

All Purpose Flour / Maida 1 1/4 cup
Baking Powder 1 tsp
Milk 1/4 cup + 2 Tbsp
Buttermilk 1/2 cup + 2 Tbsp
Butter (at room temperature) 4 1/2 Tbsp
Sugar 4 Tbsp
Vanilla Essence 1 tsp
Lemon Juice 1 Tbsp
Lemon Zest 1 tsp
For Lemon Glaze - 
Icing Sugar 5 Tbsp
Lemon Juice 1 Tbsp

Method Of Preparation -

In a mixing bowl, beat the butter until light and fluffy. Add in the sugar, vanilla essence, lemon juice and lemon zest. Mix until the sugar is dissolved.

In another mixing bowl, sieve flour and baking powder. 

Gradually add the butter mixture, buttermilk and milk, gently mix until a smooth batter is formed. Make sure it is not overly mixed.

Preheat the oven to 375 °F. Prepare a baking pan by lining it with a parchment paper.

Pour the batter into the prepared pan and bake until a toothpick comes out clean. It took me about 43 min. 

While the cake is cooling down, prepare the lemon glaze.

Mix the icing sugar and lemon juice to make a slightly thin paste.

Drizzle the lemon glaze on the cooled cake and decorate with a few lemon slices.
