Recipe for the Month: Vanilla Cake with Lemon Glaze

This is the best yellow cake I’ve ever had… its light, tender, moist, the buttery texture is just perfect and tangy as I drizzled it with lemon glaze while the cake was still warm…. It’s easy to bake and big on flavor. And I assure you of instant love at first bite!! Thanks Sarita Jijo for this simple recipe …this is a cake that makes me happy!



Eggs - 3
Plain Flour - 1 cup
Butter - 170 gm
Sugar - 1 cup
Vanilla Essence - 1 tsp
Baking Powder - ½ tsp


 Beat butter and sugar together followed by egg white separately. Sieve flour and baking powder together and add to the mixture. Beat well. Now beat egg yellow separately and add to the mixture. Also add vanilla essence and beat all the ingredients well. Grease the baking vessel with butter before pouring the mixture onto it. Bake at 180 degrees C for 30 minutes.

For Lemon Glaze
Juice of 2-3 limes {as required}
1/2 cup powdered sugar

Stir in the juice of 2 limes into 1/2 a cup of powdered sugar, and stir till you have a thick and smooth glaze. Add more powdered sugar or lemon juice if needed to get the right flowing consistency.  Pour the frosting over the top of the cake and allow it to drip down the sides. Allow the frosting to dry before covering and storing.

You can top it with whipped cream, fresh fruit or any other frosting of your choice.
