A Witch in the Kitchen: «A Lemon Cake For a Saturday Afternoon // No Egg and No Butter»

Hello Dear Witches…!

Today is Sweet Saturday!

A simple «sponge cake» doesn’t fall badly. come on, it doesn’t fall badly either another day, but today it has been raining and it caused a «tortica» with a good cup of coffee, and I decided for this recipe, which is super easy, and quick to make, in 45 minutes you get a sponge cake, delicious, soft and spongy, without much work and without using many utensils.

Few ingredients, make this an economic recipe, which accompanied by its easy development, make it almost perfect, although not very productive, because the portions are small and ends quickly, leaving the diners, wanting more, so if your intention is to make it bigger, just double the amount of ingredients, I assure you will not regret it. But come with me and you will see how easy it is to prepare it. Enjoy!


  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 Cup of sugar
  • Scratch of 2 lemons
  • 1 Cup of milk
  • 1 Tbsp lemon essence
  • 1 tsp. baking powder
  • 1 tsp white vinegar
  • 1/4 Cup sunflower oil


  • Difficulty level: Low
  • Preparation Time: 5 Minutes
  • Baking time: 40 Minutes
  • Time of Total:45 Minutes
  • Yield: 8 Portions

  • In a bowl sift the wheat flour with the baking powder, and add the sugar, stir well to integrate, make a hole in the middle and add the milk.

    We continue adding the oil, and we stir everything very well to integrate, once integrated, we add the rind of the two lemons and the essence of lemon, we stir a little only to integrate the rind and the essence, and finally we add the vinegar, stirring again.

    In a previously floured mould we add our mixture and take it to the preheated oven at 180 °C for 40 minutes or until when a toothpick is introduced it comes out clean, and Voilá!, so fast and easy is our lemon biscuit ready.

    In this opportunity I used a 22 cm mold because I wanted a thin cake, but if you want it higher just use an 18 cm mold or it is also perfect in cupcake molds. I filled it with dulce de leche, turning this innocent sponge cake into a Great Dessert , but very, very, VERY DELICIOUS.

    Tips of the Day
