Copied this recipe off this board awhile ago & it is delicious..Made it twice in one day it was so good!! Lemon Sour Cream Cake
125g softened butter, 2tsp grated lemon rind, 1C sugar, 3 eggs, 1C plain flour, 1tsp baking powder and 1/2C sour cream. Beat butter, lemon rind, sugar, eggs until light and fluffy.
Sift flour, baking powder and sour cream into wet mix - fold and mix until smooth. I bake mine at 160 degrees Celsius for 25mins fan bake. Top with a yummy lemon icing or lemon cream cheese icing or just dust with icing sugar. Absolutely moist and beautiful!
(You can use Greek yoghurt if no sour cream)

Add the rest of ingredients in order above. Grease a "bundt" tin (a lovely ring tin with a nice shape inside)and flour it -just throw a spoonful of flour into it and shake it all around so flour coats tin-shake of excess.Bake at 180c for 30 mins or test with skewer till it comes out clean.This cake stays moist for a good week and freezes extremely well.Serve dusted with icing sugar.

I have just made 'cookessentials' recipe its so easy but it seems to take twice as long to cook than the recipe says. I also make a syrup and pour over the top, which I am just about to do. I have another one which is ruth pretty's,I make for special occasions as it has 5 eggs and they are seperated so it is very light and delicous too.

Dumb question but is cookessentials the recipe that was posted by campmum or did you search the listings for it?

Hi Maureen, what size tin are you using? Did you buy a bundt tin? as this is basically the tin used for the recipe ( being American and all!) the bundt tin is just over 24cm in diameter and reasonably deep. I think it is just over the 30 mins when I do mine
