Lemon cake recipe

I love lemon, and I love lemon things to be REALLY lemony... this is tangy enough even for me!

125g butter (or Nuttelex)
3/4 cup caster sugar
1 1/2 tbsp grated lemon rind
2 eggs, lightly beaten
1 1/2 cups GF SR flour (or 1 cup SR flour, 1/2 cup almond meal)
1/2 cup sour cream or greek style natural yoghurt
1/2 cup lemon juice

Beat butter, rind and sugar with electric mixer. Beat in eggs and fold sour cream or yoghurt through mixture, as well as sifted flour and lemon juice. Mix well to make sure it's all combined. Put mixture in a cake tin greased and lined with baking paper. Bake at 180 degrees C for 40 mins or until a skewer comes out clean.

We like to serve this with partially thawed frozen raspberries and gf vanilla icecream.... yum!
