Lemon cake is my ultimate favourite in sweet treats, this gluten free recipe has the most wonderful flavour.

Heat oven to Gas Mark 3/150C

Grease 23cm round baking tin

Beat together butter and caster sugar until light and fluffy

Add eggs one at a time and beat further

Fold in polenta, almonds and baking power

Mix in half the lemon juice, saving the rest of icing

Pour into cake tin and bake for 45mins-1hr, test by inserting cocktail stick which will come out clean when baked.

Leave cake to cool for 15mins while making icing

Combine remaining half of lemon juice with icing sugar, warm slightly.

Make small holes with cockail stick in top of cake, then pour liquid icing over the top

Leave to set slightly then enjoy

Lower temp to 140C for fan assisted oven Ensure eggs are room temperature to avoid curdling If cake appears to be browning quickly place foil over for remainder of cooking time
