    Claire, this recipe looks amazing!! I was very happy to add it to this week’s features and who doesn’t love lemon cake??! I will be making this as soon as I pick up some lemons. I’ve looked through this ingredients and I guess I need some soy milk? I think I know the rest: caster sugar is just regular sugar, icing sugar is our powdered sugar. Good stuff! I’ll have to check the temperature as 180 degrees seems a little low. 325 deg. F might work better here in the USA.

    Thank you again for a lovely recipe and I’m happy to feature your post this evening at Share Your Style #397 for you. <3
