Lemon Cake from Hummingbird Bakery cookbook

This is a bit of a cowboy post, a cake blog rather than a bread blog. I took a holiday, flew to Moscow for a few days, meaning I had to put my bubbly starter to sleep for a few days. I am eagerly waiting for it to wake up now, but I wouldn’t wait another day without baking something.

I decided to make a version of Lemon Pound cake from the Hummingbird Bakery cookbook. I got this book about a year ago and have been steadily testing out all the different recipes. The lemon cake is definitely a favourite – the cake comes out nice and light, with a great lemon flavour, and makes a nice treat for breakfast or tea time.

Apologies for the photos, they are a bit blurry and out of focus, using my iPod instead of a proper camera, and there isn’t much of the cake left to justify getting a big camera out
