3/4 cup of butter
3/4 cup super-fine sugar (crush regular white sugar in a blender to make this)
3/4 cup self-rising flour
1/2 cup super-fine sugar
juice of one lemon
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Butter and line (or flour) an 8" square cake pan.
Melt butter in large bowl. Stir in sugar until dissolved. Beat eggs in a separate bowl. Gently stir in eggs and flour into butter mixture. Do not over mix. Pour into cake pan and bake for 40 minutes.
Dissolve sugar into lemon juice. Drizzle over warm cake. Cool, and cut into 16 squares.
I'm wondering if the addition of lemon zest would heighten the lemony flavor? I may do that -- some zest into the batter, and then some sprinkled on top of the lemon drizzle at the end. I'll keep you posted!
