|3 cups||wheat flour|
|1 tablesspoon||baking powder|
|250 g (1/2 lb)||margarine|
|dash of salt|
|250 g (1/2 lb)||extra refined sugar|
|juice of one lemon|
With a cake mixer beat the margarine, sugar and salt until soft. Add the eggs, one at a time, beating well. Sift the dry ingredients and add to the dough, by the spoons, alternating with milk.
Grease and dust a medium rectangular baking pan. Spread the dough on it and bake in a pre-heated oven at 180 °C for 30 minutes or until golden brown.
Icing: Sift the extra refined sugar and add the juice of one lemon. Stir well until completely dissolved (this mixture should have a relatively firm consistency). Spread the icing over the still hot cake, let it cool down, cut it in easy-to-serve portions, then serve.
