Source: Unknown
Serves: 10

4 ounces soft butter
6 ounces caster/castor (superfine) sugar
6 ounces self-raising flour
4 tablespoons milk
2 large eggs
Rind of one lemon, grated
Pinch of salt

Lemon Syrup:

Make Cake:
Well oil a 2-pound loaf tin (9"x5"x3"). Line the bottom with grease-proof paper.

Put all cake ingredients in a bowl and beat until smooth, about 3 minutes. Turn into cake tin and smooth the top so it is level. Bake 45 minutes at 350°F or 180°C. Remove from oven and stand the cake, still in the tin, on a tray to cool.

Make Lemon Syrup and Assembly:
Heat the sugar and lemon juice until a syrup has formed.

Prick the warm cake all over with a fork. Gently pour the syrup over it. Leave until the cake is cold. Turn out and sprinkle with icing sugar.
