Those were the good ol' days when no one worried about calories and fat. It was all about sharing a piece of cake with grandma!
Therefore, I dedicate this recipe to her!
Granny's Lemon Crème Fraîche Loaf
125g soft butter
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
zest and juice of one lemon (about60-70ml juice)
125ml creme fraiche
Preheat oven to 170C and prepare a cake pan. Beat butter and sugar until pale. Sift flour, baking powder and salt into a bowl. Add the lemon zest. In another bowl, whisk the crème fraîche, eggs and lemon juice. Add this to the butter mixture and beat again. Mix will curdle. No worries! Stir in the dry ingredients with a wooden spoon. Pour batter into pan and bake for 1 hour. Allow to cool on a wire rack before serving.
