About this recipe: My neighbour always used to bake this cake when we were children, and now I finally have the recipe. This is a great cake to cut into squares or slices and to wrap individually for cake sales, packed lunches or school fetes.
I made this cake yesterday (with the help of my 3 year old daughter!) and it turned out beautifully. The only change to the recipe was that I used 7 large eggs instead of 8 medium sized. I used a large baking tray 35x26cm and it was more than enough for the 20 people at last night's street party planning meeting. In fact I may have to make it again for the actual Jubilee party! Lovely and lemony but not overpowering. A very light sponge too. Will definitely make this one again. - 17 Apr 2012
