Super-Easy Lemon Cake
2 1/2 cups flour (315 g)
3 teaspoon baking powder (7.5 g)
1 1/3 cups sugar (175 g)
1 1/2 teaspoon vanilla (7.5 ml)
7 tablespoon oil (150ml)
1 1/2 cups water (340 ml)
2 tablespoons lemon juice (30 ml)
This recipe comes from my mom.
Preheat oven to 325F (160C).
Sift flour and baking powder into a bowl.
Add sugar, vanilla, oil, water and lemon juice. Mix well.
Grease either a 9x9 inch square pan or two round 8 inch pans. (Also, you can double the recipe and make a nice sheet cake.) Pour in the batter.
Bake for about 45-55 minutes. It's done when a fork (or toothpick) inserted in the center comes out clean. Let it cool before trying to take it out of the pan.
I really enjoy this cake topped with strawberries or a simple icing sugar/water glaze.
