The cake is soft n the top has lemony taste.

You can try this recipe from this link

I used my silicon cake pan but I still lined it and lifted it up easily to cool after baking.

100 gm SCS unsalted butter softened
25 gm Planta margarine
100 gm caster sugar
1/8 tsp salt 
2 eggs
4 tbsp milk
175 gm self raising flour
1 lemon rind grated finely

1 lemon juice
3 tbsp caster sugar
1 lemon rind grated finely

Beat the butter, margarine and sugar till fluffy
Add the eggs in one at a time n beat well 
Add in the lemon rind n beat in
Mix the flour and salt together 
Fold in the flour n milk
Line a loaf tin and put batter in
Preheat oven to 180 C
Bake for 40 minutes
I tented with a piece of aluminium foil at about 30 minutes and continued baking 

While cake is baking, boil the lemon juice n 3 tbsp caster sugar till sugar melts.
Then stir in the lemon rind n set aside.

Poke holes into the cake after baking.
Pour the lemon syrup over the cake. 
Give it 5 minutes to let the syrup absorb into cake 
Lift up the cake and cool on the rack

Beaten butter n sugar with lemon rind

Before bake

Cake looks like this after baking n syrup applied- easily lifted up from the pan 

Cool before cutting 

You will have balance 1 lemon without rind.
I sliced it and made honey lemon drink with it
