Ingredients:

1) 1 cup of milk cream
2) 2 cups of sugar
3) 3 cups of self-raising flour

Steps:

1) Using a grater, grate the lemon skin to get lemon zest
2) Squeeze the lemon juice
3)Cream the milk cream and sugar together till sugar dissolves
4) Sift in the flour, alternating each cup of flour with an egg to give moisture
