  1. Step 1:

    Preheat the oven to 180°C (160°C, 350°F, gas mark 4). Butter a 10" bundt tin.

  2. Step 2:

    Beat the butter and sugar together in a mixing bowl until light and fluffy.

  3. Step 3:

    Add the eggs, one at a time, whisking each one in with a tablespoon of the flour. Carefully fold in the remaining flour and bicarbonate of soda, then fold in the soured cream and lemon zest until well combined.

  4. Step 4:

    Pour the mixture into the prepared tin and spread until level. Bake for 45-55 minutes, until well risen and golden-brown. After 45 minutes, insert a skewer into the centre of the cake. If it comes out clean, the cake is cooked.

  5. Step 5:

    Leave in the tin for 15 minutes, then carefully turn out the cake and cool on a wire rack.

  6. Step 6:

    Sift the icing sugar into a bowl and beat in enough lemon juice to give a thick consistency. Drizzle the icing over the cool cake and leave to set.
