I got this recipe from a Ladies Magazine….and it is so easy to make and so tasty….good to eat on the day when warm with some cream or ice cream….but even better flavor after a day or two. Freezes very well. I perfer this cake with no drizzle, found the drizzle made it a bit sticky.
LEMON DRIZZLE CAKE (OR JUST LEMON CAKE)
8 oz (200g) soft margarine
8oz (200g) caster sugar
8oz (200g) self raising flour
2oz (50g) ground almonds
4 large eggs
Grated rind and juice of one lemon.
For the drizzle
4 tbsps lemon juice
4 tbsps sugar
- Grease and line an 8 inch tin
- Place all cake ingredients in a bowel and beat for 1 min or until well combined…said it was easy
- Pour into tin and bake for about 60-75 mins at 160c/375F/Gas mark 4-5
- For the Drizzle-Mix the sugar and lemon juice together and heat gently
- When cake comes out of oven pour hot mixture over cake and allow to soak in before turning cake out of tin
‘Jampa’ and ‘Ling’ are Tibetan words meaning ‘place of loving kindness’. The volunteers at Jampa Ling and Rinpoche’s students try to live up to this name by providing a place of tranquility, calm and understanding. One’s life may not always fit together well, and peace and tranquility and a warm welcome can sometimes help.
EVENTS TAKE PLACE ALL OVER THE SUMMER MONTHS……please visit Jampa Ling Tibetan Buddhist Centre for the full listing of events

In the morning Judith will lead the group around any available – and relatively unkempt – garden, lane, field, or park. As plants are found, she discusses the culinary, domestic and medicinal uses to which each plant, (predominantly wild ones), is put. Worksheets are provided for notes. In the afternoon, Judith does the ‘cookery demonstration’, during which she shows the methods for making infusions, decoctions, compresses, poultices, tinctures, macerated oils and ointments. She gives clear information on terminology and recipes, (or formulas). There is a further sheet of notes that complements the afternoon’s work. Judith keeps the day informal and encourages relevant questions and comments about our herbal heritage. Participants are asked to bring weathproof clothing, including boots and note-books and pens, especially for the afternoon.
Please bring vegetarian lunch to share …Workshop costs …€45 and must be booked in advance

St Patrick’s Day in Ballyconnell this year was a cool damp day, but still the crowds came out to support the local parade. There was a good selection of floats in this year’s parade, vintage tractors, local youth groups and of course music from the St. Mary’s Pipe Band from Derrylin. All in all a good day was had by all………to see more images please go to Lake Avenue House B&B facebook page.
