3.) Place the eggs, caster sugar, and margarine in a mixing bowl and beat hard until smooth and fluffy.

4.) Stir in lemon rind, then fold in flour.

To Make The Syrup:

1.) Place the icing sugar and lemon juice in a small saucepan and heat gently, stirring until all the sugar dissolves, do not boil.

2.) Prick the warm cake all over with a skewer, and spoon the hot syrup evenly over the top, allowing it to be absorbed.

3.) Leave to cool completely in the tin, then turn out the cake, cut into 12 pieces and dust with a little icing sugar before serving.
