Cooking time: 1 hour 25 minutes.

Ingredients for lemon cake recipe:
125 grams butter
1 tablespoon finely grated or chopped lemon rind
1 cup (220 grams) caster sugar
2 eggs
1 cup (150 grams) self raising flour
Half a cup of plain flour (75 grams)
Half a cup of milk (125 milliletres)

Topping: 125 ml lemon juice and one quarter cup (55 grams) caster sugar

Preheat oven to moderate heat (160-180 degrees, fan forced). Grease baking tray/cake pan, and line the base with baking paper.

Beat butter, rind and sugar in a medium sized bowl with an electric mixer until light fluffy. Add eggs, one at a time, until combined.

Stir in sifted self raising and plain flours in two batches with the milk.

Spread mixture into pan/baking tray and bake in oven at 180 degrees for 30-45 minutes. Baking time varies depending on your oven. My oven took 25 - 30 minutes.

The cake will rise and the top and edges will be golden brown when it is ready.

For the topping, combine the lemon juice and sugar in a jug or large mug. Stir until sugar is dissolved. Pour topping over cake, allow cake to stand for 15 minutes.

Cake is suitable for freezing and refrigerating. It is unsuitable for heating in the microwave.

Serve and enjoy! :)

Note to self (and anyone else interested in baking tips):

Honey is not needed for the crust/cake base It makes the crust/base a bit too sweet.

Spread mashed biscuits/butter mixture evenly and thickly across baking tray to form a crust/base that won't crumble while being baked. I put the base / crust in the freezer for 30 minutes prior to adding the cream cheese/flour/egg/sugar mixture to the baking tray. This is to prevent the cheese mixture from seeping into the base and crumbling it.

You need 250 to 300 grams of melted chocolate to create the marbling effect (chocolate swirling pattern). The chocolate needs to be thoroughly melted to swirl properly. Heat 4 small blocks of chocolate (28 grams) in the microwave for 90 seconds. WARNING:If you heat 4 grams of chocolate for 2 minutes, it gets burnt. Repeat this step until you have heated 250 grams of chocolate. I couldn't find cooking chocolate, but I strongly recommend using it for baking cakes / making desserts if you can find it. :)
