How to Make a Lemon Cake:

  • Preheat the oven to 170C/325F/gas mark 3.
  • Line a round baking dish (20cm in diameter) with non-stick baking paper and set to one side.
  • Mix together the butter, olive oil, eggs, lemon juice and lemon peel. Stir well until creamy, then add the ground almonds, baking powder and sweetener of your choice - add as much sweetener as needed to make it sweet enough. If you are using pure stevia - 1 tsp. might be enough, always taste and then add more if needed.
