About this recipe: A zesty twist on a traditional favourite and perfect to offset the sweetness of the filling. Uses the traditional "thirds" technique.
If any goes stale, use for a bread and butter pudding, replacing the call for bread smeared with butter, for the sponge cake.
Great recipe easy to follow and produced an amazing cake! Not with jam filling but with buttercream on top with strawberrys :-) - 11 Jun 2013
I combined it with a white chocolate butter cream and the result was a rich and tasty celebration cake. I will definitely use it in future. I added an extra lemon zest to the recipe. Thanks for the recipe :-) Here's a link to the white chocolate butter cream which I highly recommend. http://allrecipes.co.uk/recipe/16140/white-chocolate-buttercream-icing.aspx - 12 Feb 2014
Made this today. Dead easy to make. Used whipped fresh cream with strawberry jam. Baked in 20cm tin at 170 centigrade in fan oven for 45 mins. Came out perfect. Will be making it again. - 05 Apr 2015
