This delicious cake is full of superfoods and as I’ve reduced the sugar content by 70% from the original recipe, it’s practically healthy! You have to make it!
It’s a versatile cake which is just as nice at room temperature as it is heated and served with some cream. No equipment other than a whisk and large spoon needed along with your bowl and prepared tin. It’s made in a 23cm tin so easily feeds 10-12 people.
I was in the UK a while back and saw this recipe in a magazine so of course I took pictures and once I got home, gave it a go with sweet Irish strawberries. I picked up a punnet of King Strawberries which I hadn’t seen before. Huge fellows and very sweet!
It’s a big cake and will easily feed 12/14 people so it’s perfect for a gathering and can be dressed up a bit to make it fancy, shmancy 🙂
A delicious and light sponge cake with both an elderflower buttercream and lemon curd in the middle and topped with a simple lemon icing glaze. The secret to creating such a moist and Mmmmm response in every bite is the lemon and elderflower syrup which is drizzled over the cake while it’s still warm and let soak through.
Originally this is a Stork recipe and I found I had to change some of the proportions of ingredients to get the taste I felt was perfect. It’s a quick and simple recipe with the added bonus of only using a wooden spoon to make, even for the buttercream!
