Tourist in Amsterdam

Oh Amsterdam, why are you so beautiful, but so, so(!) busy? Anyway, this vibrant city was one of our destinations. F. and I had bought a ticket to go around the Netherlands. It was an unlimited ticket for 3 days in two weeks; you could go anywhere within the Netherlands for the same price. So, we went to provence Noord Brabant, Amsterdam and Rotterdam. This was the only day that I brought a camera with me, so I wanted to share these pictures with you guys. Embrace the glory of Amsterdam!

Easy Pease Lemon Squeeze

The easiest recipe I can imagine. Lemon Drizzle Cake is very fresh, but buttery and not so healthy cake... However, it tastes sooo good and it's perfect for warmer days. The recipe is simple:
1. Put 3 medium eggs, 180g Self Raising Flour, 180g Caster Sugar (or other sugar, I used partly cane sugar), 170 gr Butter, a few squeezes of lemon juice, and the zest of two lemons into a mixing bowl and mix till the consistency is pale yellow and has very small lumps.
2. Bake the cake for about 45 minutes in an preheated oven set to 180 degrees Celsius. 
3. Use the remaining juice of the two lemons to make the drizzle and use (cane) sugar to make it into a paste. You can play with the amounts. 
4. Do the skewer test to see if the cake is ready - simply put the skewer in the cake and remove it, if the cake is ready, there should be no batter sticking to the skewer - and remove it from the oven. 
5. When it is still hot you have to make holes in the cake, so the lemon drizzle will soak through the whole cake. 
6. Drizzle the lemon drizzle onto the cake and voila! You're done :)
