Farmhouse Current Cake for turning 25!

Arun's birthday (my younger brother) and he has turned 25. We all just wanted some good time together. My brother in law came home to stay with us and join in the pyjama party. We all spent time talking, catching up, laughing at corny jokes, sitting up in the night and enjoying ourselves. A special thank-you to Zee for having come at 12am and adding to the late night entertainment and be able to eat a good slice of goodness..

Self Rising flour - 1 3/4cup
Milk - 1/3cup
Eggs - 3
Butter - 200gms
Caster Sugar - 3/4cup
Vanilla extract - 1tsp
Lemon peel - 1tsp
Black currants - 500gms

Frosting Ingredients
Cream cheese - 100gms softened
Butter - 3tbs softened
Grated lemon zest - 1tsp
Grated orange zest - 1tsp
Icing sugar - 150gms

Preheat oven to 150C. Cream the butter and beat in the sugar and then the vanilla. Add the eggs one at a time, gradually add the flour. Stir in the milk, currents and lemon peel and mix well. Spoon into a lightly greased and lined 18cm round tin and bake for approximately for an hour and a half. Cool in the pan.
For the frosting: Beat the cream cheese and butter, orange and lemon zests until light and fluffy. Gradually beat in soft icing sugar. Spread over the cake with a spatula once the cake is cooled.
