The recipe

  • Remove the zest from the lemons. Mix them with the sugar in a large bowl and let stand 10 min. Preheat the oven at 320°F (160°C).

  • Melt the butter in a bowl and let it cool.

  • In the lemon sugar mixture, add the eggs one by one, stirring between each one.

  • Add the cream, rum and salt and mix.

  • In a bowl, mix the flour and baking powder. Add them to the previous preparation in 3 times, stirring each time.

  • Finally add the butter

  • Put the cake batter in a large cake pan and bake for 70 to 80 minutes in the preheated oven at 320°F (160°C).

  • Check that the cake is cooked by inserting a knife which should come out dry.

  • Prepare the syrup: heat the sugar and water in a saucepan. Remove from the heat at the first broth. Add the lemon juice off the heat.

  • At the exit of the oven, pour the syrup (warm or cold) on the cake (still in its mould). Leave to cool for at least 1 hour before unmoulding.

  • Good to know: with these proportions, that's one big cake and two mini ones.
