Lemon polenta cake with lemon icing

Unfortunately we are unable to add this recipe to your favourites, please try again later.


For the lemon icing


  1. Grease a small microwave-safe bowl with butter.

  2. Place the butter, polenta, flour, sugar, eggs and lemon zest into a food processor and blend until smooth. Pour the cake mixture into the greased bowl and cover with cling film.

  3. Place into the microwave and cook on the highest power for 5-8 minutes, until cooked through. You can test this by piercing the cake with a skewer and removing it - if the skewer comes away clean then the cake is ready.

  4. For the lemon icing, sift the icing sugar into a bowl, add the lemon juice and mix well.

  5. To serve, tip the pudding and bowl upside-down onto a plate and remove the bowl. Drizzle over the lemon icing and honey and garnish with fresh mint.
