Glazed Lemon cake Recipe- easy cake baking recipes

          I did not actually want to write a recipe for a cake in this post after already posting one in my previous post. But this one was so good and delicious  that I could not resist myself from posting this one soon.Yes, believe me,this one was one of the best cakes I have baked till date. And the best part is
it is so easy and does not involve any complicated steps that even your kid can handle it. I swear, I allowed my 4 year old to help me. He has his school holidays now. Few days back, I saw champa's post on vanilla cake. She said that this was the easiest cake ever and how her friend's children helped her bake the cake. That sounded so cute and I decided to involve my son in making this one. He was so excited about it.I kept adding  the ingredients in  a big bowl which I placed on his small table in the kitchen while he kept stirring it with a whisk and thoroughly enjoyed the process. He actually remembered all the ingredients added to the cake when I asked him after the whole process was over. Later in the evening, he told his dad that he baked the cake today while his mummy helped him a little.
       Okay, now for the cake. I took the basic recipe from Champa's easiest vanillla cake which I converted to lemon cake by adding the rind and juice of the lemon followed by a lemon glaze. As a result the cake was sweet and tangy. It was thoroughly enjoyed my everyone. The flavour and taste was just amazing. Infact, my hubby asked me to bake this one again.

All purpose flour- 3 cups
Sugar- 1 1/2 cup
Baking soda-1tsp
Baking powder- 1/2tsp
Buttermilk- 1 1/2 cup(diluted curd)
Oil- 3/4 cup
Lemon rind- of 1 lemon
Lemon juice- 3tbsp

Lemon glaze-
Lemon juice- 2tbsp
Powdered sugar- 1/2 cup
( you can also add vanilla essence if you want)
   Beat the eggs  well in  a bowl.
Mix in the sugar.
Add the buttermilk and oil and thoroughly mix the liquid ingredients.
Combine the flour, salt,baking soda and baking powder in a bowl and then add this in the wet mixture gradually stirring to form a uniform mixture.
Fold in the lemon rind and juice.
Pour the batter in a well greased and floured bundt cake pan. Bake this at 180c for 35 minutes till a skewer inserted in it comes out clean. Cool the cake well in the pan. Turn it on a plate.
      Mix the sugar and lemon juice till it becomes a smooth and spreadable. Poke small holes over the cake. Pour the glaze over it. Leave the cake for about an hour. Slice and serve.
