Lovely lemon cake

I baked my Mum a cake for mother's day.  I usually make cupcakes and recently I've attempted biscuits and cookies, but I hardly ever bake whole cakes, so this was a nice change.  It was so much faster than making lots of cupcakes!







I followed a basic cupcake recipe and changed it up a bit

For the cake
♥ 200g caster sugar
♥ 200g butter
♥ 4 eggs
♥ 200g self-raising flour
♥ 1tsp baking powder
♥ 2tbsp milk
♥ 3 cap-fulls Sainsbury's Taste the difference Sicillian Lemon extract

For the filling

♥ 100g low fat soft cheese (like Philadelphia)
♥ 100g butter
♥ 250g icing sugar
♥ 1 cap-full Sainsbury's Taste the difference Sicillian Lemon extract


The silicone cake mould was from Lidl and it was about £3.  I'd never used these before but will definitely get more, the cake didn't stick at all and was so easy to get out of the mould.
