After reading Dom of Bellau Kitchen’s recipe for lemon cake (actually his mum’s recipe to be truthful) I wondered how it would turn out in my bargain fancy cake tin that I bought from Lakeland.
Well it turned out fine, just as good as the any time of day fruit cake, and I took it to my mother-in-law’s little Mother’s Day tea party where was well appreciated.
Obviously, I had to let the cake cool just a little before turning it out and drizzling with the lemon syrup, rather than pouring it on straight out of the oven as per the recipe, because the cake is served upside down so the drizzle goes over the bottom, when it has become the top!
It looked lovely and tasted delicious so I am most grateful to Dom for posting his mum’s recipe.
However, it was nowhere near as spectacular as this cake baked by Elizabeth at Elizabeth’s Kitchen:

She used the same recipe and made it into something beautiful for a friend’s birthday. You can read all about it here.
Well done Elizabeth – icing is something on my bucket list, which seems to be getting longer every day !! After all, everyone needs something to aim for in life !!
I am linking this post to Bookmarked Recipes#22, a monthly event organised by Jacqueline of Tinned Tomatoes, to encourage people to try and blog about recipes they have found in blogs, websites, books and magazines. You can read last month’s roundup and see the selection for this month so far here.
