Make sure the kneading blade(s) are properly attached, and add the ingredients to the baking pan in the order listed, except for the glaze.



Place the baking pan into the Home Bakery, close the lid and plug the power cord into the outlet. Select the CAKE course. Set the crust setting to MEDIUM for BB-CEC20/BB-PAC20 model and REGULAR for BB-HAC10 model. Press START.



When the add beeps sound, open the lid and carefully scrape off any flour that may be left on the side of the pan with a rubber spatula. Please be careful if the kneading blade(s) is moving.


When baking completes, press CANCEL and remove the baking pan to a cooling rack.



While cake is cooling, make the glaze. In a small bowl, combine powdered sugar and lemon juice. Mix with whisk until smooth.
