Fresh Lemon Loaf
Foolproof Every Time!
3oz melted margarine or butter
1 cup castor sugar
2 eggs
1 1/2 cups plain flour
1 tsp. baking powder or use self-rising flour
1/4 tsp. salt
1/2 cup milk
1 Tbls. grated lemon rind
1 Tbls. lemon juice
1/2 cup sultanas
1/2 cup chopped apricots

2 Tbls. lemon juice
1/2 cup castor sugar


Grease an 8-inch loaf tin. Heat oven to 375 degrees F. (190 degrees C.).

Sift flour, baking powder and salt.

Mix sugar into melted shortening. Add eggs one at a time, beating well.

Add dry ingredients to egg mixture, alternately with milk.

Fold in lemon juice and dried fruits. Pour into tin.

Bake 50-60 minutes until golden brown.

While hot pour lemon syrup over loaf.

Stir sugar and lemon juice over low heat till sugar dissolves.

This cake freezes well, wrapped in foil and then put in a plastic bag.

I usually make double quantity and freeze one loaf.
