A very simple recipe for a tasty traybake, originally by Mary Berry.
- 225g butter at room temperature plus extra for greasing
- 225g caster sugar
- 275g self-raising flour
- 1 tsp baking powder
- 4 large eggs
- 4 tbsp milk
- zest of 2 lemons
- juice of 2 lemons and 175g sugar for the glaze
Preheat the oven to 180C. Grease a 30 x 20 cm traybake tin and line base with baking parchment.
Put all 7 traybake ingredients in a large bowl and beat with an electric mixer for 1-2 minutes until smooth. Longer if using a wooden spoon.
Pour the mixture into the lined tin and spread evenly. Bake for 35-40 minutes or until risen and springy to the touch.
Run a knife around the edge of the tin and turn out on to a wire rack.
To make the glaze, mix the lemon juice with the sugar and spoon over the warm cake.
Leave to cool and cut into 16 slices.
