There is a trick to get a real fluffily cake that I have learned from a pastry chef many years ago, and it always works. Just read the method and you´ll see! Might take some time to do it this way, but the result is defo worth it.
If you want the cake to taste even more lemon-ny, add the zests of an organic lemon.
Prepare all the other ingredients in the meantime. As soon as the butter has melted, place the bowl in the sink that you´ve filled with cold water to cool the butter down to room temperature.
Beat the eggs, sugar and salt until they´ve formed a smooth mass, almost like thick foam. The sugar shoud have completely dissolved by then.
Take some of the melted butter to butter the baking-tin. It should have the size of about half a baking tray.
Carefully add the melt butter and the lemon juice to the eggs, then the flour which is mixed with the baking powder. Mix it all with a whisk or a wooden spoon, it defo has to be manual, not with a food processor or a handmixer!
Pour the dough into the baking-tin and place it in the oven for about 25 to 30 minutes. Start to check on the cake from about 20 minutes, using a wooden toothpick. Quickly stick it into the cake down to the bottom and check on it. As soon as it doesn´t feel sticky anymore the cake is done.
Take the cake out of the oven and let it cool down until it´s almost reached room-temperature. Prepare the icing by mixing the sieved powder sugar and the juice of the lemon. Coat the cake with the icing and wait until it´s set.
Serve in little pieces.
