Lemon Cream Cheese Cake




Have you tried the Lemon Pound cake from Starbucks? It's absolutely delicious! It's just me again craving for rich cakes but with the current economic situation going downhill, i just can't bring myself to spend $$$ on cakes anymore. It's cheaper if you just bake them yourself. For anticipated bakers, this recipe is the one for you if you're looking for a rich lemoney cake.

Ingredients:
  • 6 oz. of cream cheese, softened
  • 150g of butter, softened
  • 1 cup of sugar
  • Rinds of a lemon
  • Juice of a lemon
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 1/3 cup of flour
  • 1.5 tsp of baking powder

Method:

Preheat the oven to 175 DC. Beat the cream cheese, butter and sugar till light and fluffy. Add in the eggs, one at a time and mix well. Scrap the sides of the mixing bowl from time to time. Add in lemon rinds and juice. Mix well. Lastly, add in flour and baking powder. Bake in oven for 45 minutes or until the skewer inserted comes out clean.

* I sprinkled some chopped almonds on the cake batter before baking it. It's yummy....crunchy on the surface and soft inside* =^=
