About this recipe:I ate this cake on my last holiday to Majorca and asked for the recipe straightaway. It is fantastically simple, calling for just six easy to find ingredients. It's a nice recipe when you're looking for something easy but different.

1 tablespoon lemon juice
1 teaspoon cinnamon
2 tablespoons rum

Grease a loaf tin or casserole dish (preferably wide, so that the cake is not too tall) and sprinkle with breadcrumbs. Preheat oven to 180 C / Gas 4.
Beat the eggs in a bowl until fluffy. Stir in the remaining ingredients one by one. Pour mixture into the prepared tin and bake in preheated oven for 40-50 minutes. Do a skewer test - push a skewer into the centre of the cake. When it comes out clean, the cake is ready. The cake should be beautiful and moist.
