2 eggs, beaten

75 ml (1/3 cup) sour cream

Chocolate vermicelli

 

Lemon Coffee Icing

Juice of 1 lemon

30 ml (2 tbsp) strong coffee

50 ml (1/4 cup) softened butter

500 ml (2 cups) icing sugar

Heat oven to 180 C (350 F).

In a large bowl, cream butter with sugar. Beat in eggs, one at a time, and sour cream with an electric mixer. Stir in milk and set aside. In a separate bowl, mix flour with baking powder. Blend into butter mixture gradually, beating until smooth. Add lemon juice and rind. Mix well.

Pour mixture into a 23-cm (9-inch) buttered round cake pan. Bake for 1 hour. Let stand for 10 minutes and remove from pan. Spread with lemon coffee icing. Sprinkle cake with chocolate vermicelli.

Icing: Squeeze lemon juice into a small bowl and strain to remove pits. In a food processor, cream lemon juice, coffee, butter and half the sugar. Whip in remaining sugar until mixture is thick and creamy. Spread cake with icing.

Chill for 2 hours before serving.
