A perfect summer cake that is easy, quick and contains only 5 ingredients. In this recipe, I melt the butter, but you could just let the butter soften at room temperature and mix in it later instead.

The cake is very good to serve hot (after it has rested for a few minutes) but it is also good to serve cold. It stays in the fridge for a few days and can also be frozen.
