The five golden commandments at a glance

Oil, orange juice and potions are one thing. The right preparation of the batter is another. It actually plays an important role in a juicy result. That's why my 5 commandments are summarized for you at a glance:

  1. Lemon cake with Oil and orange juice in combination to prepare.
  2. Beat the eggs and sugar until they are really frothy. What this means for you: stir for 1 minute per egg. This works best with a food processor. I prefer to use my MUM 5 for this.
  3. Just stir in the flour until just a batter comes together. Small flour tips are allowed.
  4. Bake with the PerfectBake baking sensor. My absolute secret weapon. Because the oven switches off automatically when your cake is perfect.
  5. Put a potion on the cake. It just gets juicier.
