For the dough:

Besides that:


  1. First preheat the oven to 160 degrees. Break soft butter into small pieces and cream together with the sugar in a mixing bowl. A white cream should form. If so, gradually add the eggs and mix.

  2. Now sift the flour into another bowl. Mix in baking powder and a pinch of salt. Fold everything into the butter-sugar-egg mixture until a smooth batter forms.

  3. Rinse the organic lemons with warm water. Grate the peel and add to the dough – along with the juice of one lemon. The juice of the other lemon will be used later. Mix the dough well again.

  4. Line a baking sheet (approx. 42 x 29 cm) with baking paper and spread the dough on it. Smooth the surface and put everything in the oven on the middle shelf. Bake for 25 to 30 minutes – just do a skewer. When no more dough sticks to the stick, the cake can be taken out of the oven. Let cool well.

  5. When the cake has cooled, the frosting can be prepared. To do this, sift the icing sugar into a bowl and mix with 6 tablespoons of fresh lemon juice. Once you have a smooth, lump-free frosting, spread it over the cake and smooth it down. Garnish the cake with fresh lemon slices and mint leaves as you like – done!
