    In a separate bowl, cream the butter, sugar and salt until light and fluffy.

     

    Then add the eggs, one at a time, beating until fully combined. If signs of curdling appear, add a tablespoon of flour and mix in.

     

    Next add the lemon zest, juice and vanilla extract.

    Leave in tin until cake has cooled down.

    Meanwhile prepare lemon glaze and lemon icing.

    For the Glaze:

    • 100 gms castor sugar,
    • 60 mls fresh lemon juice,
    • In a small bowl dissolve sugar in the lemon juice by micro waving for about 1 minute.
    • For the Lemon Icing:
    • 240 gms icing sugar,
    • 3 x tablespoon fresh lemon juice,
    • zest of a lemon,

    Add lemon juice to icing sugar and mix well.

    After the cake has cooled, gently invert over a wire rack and remove from Bundt tin. This can be quite tricky so it will depend on how well you greased your tin before hand. Use a knife if necessary to loosen around sides of cake.

    When cake has been removed, poke some holes all over top and wash cake with the glaze syrup, until it has all sunk in and cake has a shiny appearance.

    Next pour over Lemon icing and let it run down sides, as this looks good.
