Best Cake Ever

As my first blog ever i thought i would start with something that will not disappoint!
This is what i think is one of the best cakes ever!
It's super easy and so yummy.

I got this awesome cake from the blog A true love of mine which she cleverly developed from Gwyneth Watkins recipe found in the Country Womens Association Cakes Cookbook.


To describe it just isn't enough but ill have a go, its fluffy and moist, with a delicious lime syrup.



180g Softened salted butter
1 cup Caster Sugar 
2 Eggs
1 1/4 + 1/3 cups Self Raising Flour (the recipe i got this from had troubles with fractions and so do i so i hope u get what i mean here)
3/4 cup Sour Cream
Zest of one Lime
3 tablespoons Lime Juice

Lime Syrup

4 tablespoons Lime Juice
100 g icing sugar

Let's do this:

1. Pre heat over to 160 degrees Celsius, line or grease an 18cm tin

2. Cream the softened butter and sugar on medium speed

3. Beat in zest and eggs

4. Fold in sifted flour, sour cream and lime juice

5. Bake in oven for one hour 

Lime Syrup

1. In a small saucepan dissolve the sugar in the line juice over a low heat

And finally

Poke several holes in the cake using a skewer, then poor the delicious warm lime syrup over the cake. Don't be afraid of the syrup it won't make the cake soggy, just delicious!

The batter looks super thick but don't worry, just smooth it out and it will work.
More holes = more yummy syrup seeping through the cake
You can also make this using lemons or oranges

This cake would be super cute and yummy as cupcakes also. I recommend having it warm, trust me its gooodd!
