Recipe Ingredients for Lemon Madeira cake

175 g (6oz) butter, softened
175 g (6oz) muscavado sugar
3 medium eggs
250 g (8oz) wholemeal flour
3 tablespoons lemon juice

Recipe Directions for Lemon Madeira cake

  1. Cream together the butter and sugar until pale and fluffy. Beat in the eggs, one at a time, adding a spoonful of flour with each egg. Fold in the lemon zest and juice, and the remaining flour.

  2. Pour the mixture into a 18cm (7in) round cake tin, lined with baking parchment, and level the surface. Bake in the centre of the oven for 25 mins at 180C (350F, gas mark 4).

  3. Remove from the oven and place the citron peel slices on the top of the cake, if using. Bake for a further 40-50 mins, or until it's just firm to the touch in the centre and a skewer comes out clean after being inserted into the middle.

  4. Take out of the oven and leave to cool in the tin for 10-15 mins. Transfer from the tin to a wire rack to cool completely.
