- 125 g butter softened
- 125 g caster sugar
- 2 lemons
- 3 medium eggs
- 150 g self-raising flour
- ½ tsp baking powder
- 2 tbsp granulated sugar
Preheat the oven to 180oC, gas mark Grease and base line a 1 kg loaf tin.
Place 50g walnuts in a food processor and blitz to a coarse powder, chop a further 25g.
Whisk the butter and sugar in a large bowl until pale and fluffy. Whisk in the zest of 2 lemons and then whisk in the eggs, 1 at a time. Fold in the flour, baking powder and prepared walnuts to give a smooth batter. Spoon into the prepared tin and bake for 35-40 minutes until golden and a skewer comes out clean.
