This is my nana’s recipe, it is just a little piece of heaven on your tongue!
Ingredients: 4oz cornflour 3oz butter 2oz caster sugar One egg Level teaspoon baking powder Teaspoon grated lemon rind Icing sugar
Cream the butter (margarine will do) and sugar until light and fluffy and add the lemon rind. Sieve the cornflour and baking powder together. Break the egg into a bowl and beat with a fork. Add a small amount (about a tablespoon) of egg and a similar amount of cornflour alternately to the creamed butter and sugar, beating well between each addition.
Place about a dozen paper cake cases in a baking tin and add a teaspoonful of mixture to each case (use the back of another spoon to push it off). Place in a pre-heated oven at 375F/180C/Gas mark 4 and bake 10 minutes until firm and golden (don’t let them get beyond a golden colour).
Allow the cakes to cool on a rack and then add a dusting of the icing sugar.
