All in One Lemon Sponge Layer Cake

Makes 1 layer cake

All the ingredients are measured into the bowl at the beginning for this cake, hence the ‘all in one’ name. Softened butter is important in this lemony creation which makes an ideal tea time treat. For simplicity, these lemon sponge layers could be sandwiched together with lemon curd, marmalade or cream cheese and the top dusted with a little icing sugar.
