Happy Valentines Day!
In honor of the holiday I thought I would post a little recipe for you. We all know how I love my little 8" snack cakes. Enough to give everybody a little taste yet not a huge cake laying around to tempt those with little will power.
Lemon Snack Cake
1 1/4 cups all purpose flour
1 cup sugar
1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons lemon zest
1/4 cup butter or margarine melted
3/4 cup milk
Lightly grease 8 inch square baking pan
Preheat oven to 350.
Combine flour sugar baking powder and salt in a bowl.
In another small bowl combine egg and lemon zest and beat well.
Add melted butter and milk and mix all well. Combine with dry ingredients and stir well. Some lumps will remain.
Bake 35 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean
For my icing I simply softened half a stick of butter and then added 2 teaspoons lemon juice and powdered sugar gradually with a fork beating as I go until I had a thick spreading consistency. Spread on cool cake. I refrigerate any leftovers.
