I desperately want to make this cake but haven't got a food mixer or a microwave

I know I can warm the lemon juice on the stove but can I mix the cake ingredients by hand & if so in what order?

Beat together the sugar and butter till light and fluffy with a wooden spoon.

whisk the eggs and add a little at a time to mixture, make sure it doesn't curdle. If it does add a tiny bit of flour until it goes smooth again.

When all egg has been added, fold in the flour with a metal spoon

Then fold in the lemon rind. I think thats it

Or do what I did (before buying and electric hand whisk)..... pop it all in the bowl and stir stir stir!!!!!!!!!!!1

If warming the lemon juice is too much faff, mix granulated sugar into the cold lemon juice. Makes a nice crunchy topping.

Oh.... and don't blame me if you go up a dress size!

DISCLAIMER: All those baking and eating LDC will have no right to cry foul or moan that they have increased in girth! Nor shall they complain there wasn't enough cake. No animals have been harmed in making this product!
