Lemon Butter Cake Recipe

If there was ever a recipe that takes me straight back to my childhood, it would have to be this Lemon Butter Cake.  This was a staple in our house growing up, with my Mum making it without fail each Sunday.

While this recipe may be a little different to the one Mum used to make (and I know she would have never dreamed of using a Thermomix to make it!) it still retains the essential original elements – light, moist, tangy and delicious.
