About this recipe:The secret in this cake is 7 UP or Sprite. It makes the texture really light. I usually make a simple icing to drizzle over the top by adding icing sugar to 4 tablespoons of lemon juice and mixing it until it's smooth.
600g caster sugar
375g plain flour
2 teaspoons lemon extract
175ml Sprite or 7-UP.
