We have the the most amazing lemon tree on our property which fruits all year and I have great fun finding lots lovely recipes in which I can use our lemons.. This was a cake recipe that I found a while ago by Nigella Lawson and is one of the most delicious, and moist cakes that I have come across. The bonus is that it can be made gluten free and dairy free.
I always treat our guests to some homemade cake and this is by far one of the favourites.

NOTE: To make this cake gluten-free, make sure to use gluten-free baking powder, or omit the baking powder altogether and beat the batter exuberantly at step 4.
To make this cake dairy-free, substitute 150ml light and mild olive oil for the 200g of butter.
