Lemon Lime Cake - My Ice Cream Photo on Time Out Magazine

This lemon lime cake is only a decoy, a bait to give me a chance to gush at how happy I am....because my ice cream picture is printed in a magazine!

Oh yeah! Oh yeah!

Please excuse how lame I am, it's just....I haven't had anything of me printed in a magazine, except for my contribution to my company's publications.

So, although the picture isn't exactly big, and I couldn't even find my name on the credit list without a microscope...I am so damn happy that some people found my picture useful. Yay! The graphic designer at Time Out magazine was very nice, she asked for proper permission to print and sent me a copy of the magazine, which I totally appreciate.

The picture was originally posted

Here's the cover of the magazine:

Here's the article:

...and here's my ice cream photo, with a tiny print of my name somewhere., as a token for my appreciation of your patience, having endured my lame overenthusiasm...

Lemon Lime Cake

It's just a humble quick and easy snack/dessert made from muffin batter, disguised in a cake form and whisked more than I normally do muffins. Don't be fooled by how ugly it looks, it is one of the most popular things I've baked and forced offered to my colleagues. But then again, they are Hong Kongers. They love receiving killing drinking and eating anything that includes lemon.
- 1 cup all purpose flour (sifted)
- 1/3 cup + 3 table spoon sugar
- 1/2 tsp baking powder
- 1/2 tsp baking soda
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1 egg, beaten
- 2/3 cup yoghurt
- 1/4 cup olive oil
- 1 tsp vanilla
- juice and zest of 1 lemon and 1 lime

Preheat oven to 180C/350F. Mix all dry ingredients in a bowl, mix all wet ingredients in another, mix them well. Pour into a lightly greased loaf pan or muffin tray lined with muffin cups, bake until a toothpick inserted in the middle comes out clean (based on my experience: loaf pan = about 20 minutes, muffin tray = about 15 minutes).

They are sweet, soft, moist and lemony, perfect with a cup of hot tea, while watching my current obsession.
Thanks for bearing with me, you guys!

Congrats Rita! The photo is a fine one and be delighted that they actually gave you credit. I've heard of other bloggers' recipes and photos being simply "taken".
