Lemon Twist

In this hot n humid summer, nothing like a citrus punch from soft and sweet dessert ...i tried several things out of the wonder lemon , the newest is this lemon twist, is actually a fruit cake kind of texture but with lemon flavor and sweetness of bun too. It turned out to be so good and pleasurable.


-Self raising flour 2 cups
-Butter 90 gms
-Egg 1
-Castor sugar 4 tbsp
-Glaced cherries 1/2 cup
-Sultanas 1/4 cup
-Lemon Zest 2 tsps
-Milk as required to make a dough


Sift flour and mix all the ingredients to form a soft pillable dough. Divide into 3 portions. Make rolls of each portion, about 14 cm long,  and combine them to make a spiral. Press ends to make it completely round. Bake in preheated moderate oven for about 15-20minutes.

Lemon Glace:

-Lemon zest 1 tsp
-Sugar 3 tbsps
-Water 2 tbsps

Combine all on low flame and and make thick syrup. Pour on hot lemon twist. Dust with extra icing sugar if you like and serve !
