The Lord bless you and keep you

The Lord make his face to shine upon you

and be gracious to you

The Lord lift up his countenance upon you

and give you peace…Numbers 6:24

Vanilla-glazed Lemon Loaf Cake

I found this recipe on Mums in the Kitchen blog. It looks so delicious and is perfect for tea time.

1 1/2 cups plain flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
2 eggs
3/4 cup caster sugar
125g butter, at room temperature, chopped
3/4 cup buttermilk
1 lemon, rind finely grated

Vanilla Glaze:
1 cup icing sugar, sifted
30g butter, melted
2 tablespoons boiling water
1 teaspoon vanilla essence

Preheat oven to 170 degrees, or 150 fan-forced.  Grease and line an 11cm x 23cm loaf pan.

Sift together the flour and baking powder.  Place eggs and caster sugar into a food processor and process until pale.  Add butter and process until thick and creamy.  Add buttermilk and rind, and pulse until combined.  Add flour mixture and pulse until a batter forms.

Fill prepared pan and bake for 40-45 minutes.  Cool in pan for 10 minutes.

Meanwhile, make Vanilla Glaze - combine all ingredients in a bowl until smooth.

Remove cake from pan and brush glaze over cake. Cool cake completely on a wire rack, then serve.
