Lemon Pound Cake

I've been cooking something delicious for the past few days, but I just been lazy to take shots of it .... though I wanted to share it with you what I have been cooking!!  

Well, at home, everything is me, me, me...... doing all the house chores, cleaning, washing, ironing, cooking, baking, typing the office work at home.  So sometimes, I have to juggling running up and down, doing this, then doing that.......

So to find solace... and away from stress, I will bake eventhough sometimes I'm tired after the housework!  Hee...hee...
To make something simple for my tea break today, I have baked a Lemon Pound Cake..... a recipe from Okashi...sweet treats made with love

Lemon Pound Cake 
Recipe from Okashi...sweet treats made with love

150g cake flour
1/8 tsp baking powder
150g unsalted butter, soften (room temperature)
150g icing sugar
1/8 tsp salt
3 eggs (about 150g), beaten lightly
1 lemon, grated for zest

Preheat oven to 170C.
Line a 19cm x 9cm loaf pan with parchment paper.

Sift flour and baking powder together twice.  Set aside.

Beat butter, icing sugar and salt together in an electric mixer until light, fluffy and pale.  Gradually add eggs and beat well.

Add flour and baking powder mixture and fold through completely using a spatula.  Surface of batter should be glossy and smooth.

Pour batter into prepared cake pan and make a lengthwise dent in the middle with a spatula.
Bake cake for about 50 minutes.

 Does it look like the original one....from the Okashi cookbook?  Hee...!!
