Let There Be Cake
Homemade lemon Madeira loaf...My favourite!
...and seeing as the whole loaf lasted about 40 minutes....everyone else's favourite too!
Cream butter and sugar until fluffy.
Beat eggs lightly and add gradually to mixture, beating all the time.
Stir in grated lemon rind.
Sift the flour and a pinch of salt together.
Fold flour into mixture using a lge metal spoon.
Mix in 2 tablespoons of water (I use the juice of the lemon here instead)
Spoon into a greaseproof loaf tin.
Cook in centre of preheated oven for 30 minutes at 180
Reuce heat to 160 and cook for a further 30 minutes.
Slide a knife into the middle of the loaf, if it comes out clean...It's ready!
Allow to cool in tin for 30 mins before turning out.
