Lemon Cake"Lemonopita"

Lemons are abundant through out the Islands during the winter months and this is one delicious way that the Islanders have found to use them up.


1/2 cup butter 1/4 tsp. salt
3/4 cups sugar 1 1/2 tbs. grated lemon peel
2 eggs Topping:
1/2 cup warm milk 1/2 cup fresh lemon juice
1 1/2 cups flour 1 cup sugar
1 1/2 tsp. baking powder  

Preheat your oven to 350°F.

Cream the butter thoroughly in a bowl and gradually add the sugar while beating. Beat the eggs until light and creamy and with a spoon fold them into the butter and sugar. Stir in the milk with a wooden spoon, then slowly add the flour, baking powder, salt and lemon peel.

Pour the batter into a well-greased 9x12 pan and bake about 25 minutes.

Mix the topping ingredients together in a bowl. Remove the cake from the oven and spoon the mixture evenly over the hot cake and return it to the oven to bake for another 5 minutes. The juice will penetrate into the cake and the sugar will crust over the top.

Susie’s note: You can cut the warm cake into serving size squares and arrange them on a platter, ready for when company calls.
