I have only one lemon left on my meyer lemon tree now. But lots of new flowers on both lemon bushes. For the first itme this year I had wasp galls on the meyer lemons. I cut them off a few weeks ago and disposed of them so hopefully wont be a problem
With the last of the lemons I made lemon icing for this very delicious carrot cake. It is waiting on the bench for Guitar Dude and Zippy to get home from school.
175mls olive oil
200g castor sugar
100g pecans or wlamuts or almonds
200g plain flour
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
1 1/2 tsp bicarbonate soda
ground cinnamon and ginger
1/2 tsp salt
Heat oven to 180 c, line tin. Beat eggs in a bowl and add oil and sugar. Add grated carrots and chopped nuts. Sift in flour and other ingredients and fold together. Spoon mixture into a tin and bake for 45 minutes.
Icing is made with 50g icing sugar, 200g cream cheese, lemon juice and vanilla essence.
