3 large eggs

3 tsps baking powder
1/2 tsp salt

1 3/4 cups unsalted butter
zest of 2 lemon
Juice of 2 lemon
1 cup powdered sugar

Cream together your cake ingredients until you're left with a nice smooth cake batter. Pour into your pan & bake for about 30-35mins. While you're waiting, mix together your icing sugar & lemon juice until totally smooth, pop it to one side. After 30 mins check the cake by inserting a skewer into the middle, if it comes out clean it's done. If not, give it a few mins more. When it's ready use your skewer to poke holes all over the cake, all the way down to the bottom. Pour over your lemon glaze...
