Lemon drizzle cake (what's left of it!) #575

Daily painting #575 5"x7" oil on primed canvas panel

Perhaps my little painting doesn't do the cake enough justice....this little easy-peasy cake is delicious and doesn't last very long in our house (can you tell?). I managed to salvage just the last end slice to paint but I had some greedy critters hovering around my studio waiting for the opportunity to share the last piece! The bitterness of the lemon cuts through the sweetness of the cake and even my son who doesn't really enjoy cake loves this one! It is made with so few ingredients....self-raising flour, castor sugar, coconut, lemon rind and milk and takes all of about 5 minutes to get from cupboard ingredients into the oven. My kind of baking! 
It's grandpa's 70th birthday this weekend so I am enlisting the help of my daughter, Amy, to bake a delicious (chocolate overloaded) birthday surprise cake for Grandpa Mannie. He is Portuguese and usually likes some kind of fruit cake or Madeira cake but I think this chocolate fudge cake will be delicious! Can you tell that I am desperate to get back into my kitchen....... 
Lots of love from one frustrated Mamma!
