Easter Lemon Cake

Lemon Cake Lemon Cake

Easter is coming up. The fact that spring has arrived and our house is decorated with yellow flowers, might have something to do with me baking a lemon cake today. I had always wondered how to get a sugar icing that is not transparent, but has a rich white color – you will find the instructions below.


  • 500 g flour
  • 1 package baking soda
  • 250 g sugar
  • 250 g butter
  • 1 package vanilla sugar
  • 4 eggs
  • grated skin of 2 organic lemons
  • some lemon juice
  • some milk

Mix the sugar and vanilla sugar with butter. Then, slowly pour in the eggs. Next, add the flour mixed with baking soda. Grate the skin of 2 organic lemons and add it to the mixture with some lemon juice. The consistency of the dough should be slightly sticky – you might have to add some milk. Bake the cake for about 1 hour until it has turned golden yellow.

Sugar Icing

To get a sugar icing with a rich white color, use milk instead of water. Press 1 package of powdered sugar through a sieve. Mix it with little milk and add some lemon juice.
