I'm after a cake that is very light (like a sponge) and very moist.. but is not quite a sponge (a bit more cakey). God hope that made sense LOL... i made a pound cake.. but nah that doesn't quite do it. Any suggestions?

Lemon Madeira Cake.
As a cake decorator this is the recipe I always use.It comes out lovely and moist and keeps that way for days.Makes 2 medium cakes or 1 large cake.Gave this recipe on here a few weeks ago and baker was delighted how well it turned out..
1 cup milk
125gm butter. Bring these to the boil
In a mixer, beat 4 eggs and gradually adds 2 cups sugar, 1 pkt lemon jelly crystals and 1 tsp vanilla essence. Beat until thick, then add 2 and a 1/4 cups of plain flour, 1/4 tsp salt and 2 tsp baking powder. Mix then quickly stir in the boiled milk and butter. Turn the mixture into two 7 or 8 inch lined tins and bake 180c for 20 minutes. If using a novelty shaped pan bake the whole mixture for 40 minutes at 180c or until skewer comes out clean.

yeah i know lol... I was just a bit dumbfounded i guess that there are jelly crystals in a cake LOL... does it affect the texture?

lemon jelly crystals!

kiwitrish, Jul 16, 9:07pm
no, they disolve when the hot milk and butter are added.

Would you be able to use any flavoured jelly?
It might make some interesting cakes with different flavours.

kiwitrish, Jul 19, 11:55pm
I tried it with a strawberry jelly but to tell the truth I couldnt taste any flavour in it.Might be worth a try though.

kiwitrish, Jul 19, 11:56pm
Thank you.It does make a nice cake.All the cake decorators I know use the recipe.

I made the cake today.The 8 inch square too a bit longer to cook but he slab one cooked in 20 minutes.I put grated lemon peel.It is a very light,moist delicious cake.Many thanks for the recipe will definitely make it again.

I agree with you retired. It's going to be one of my new favourite recipes. I'm hoping it will freeze well as it made such a big cake, I put 1/2 in the freezer. Mine took about 50 minutes to cook. My husband has just had a piece and has given it the thumbs up too.
Thanks kiwitrish. I have passed the recipe on to my 2 daughters too.

Sounds great, except for vegetarians!Will try it using vegetarian jelly crystals.

I made this today and it's yummmmy :) Just wondering how it would turn out making 2 loaves instead of the cakes, and what size loaf tins would be best to use? The cakes will definitely be made again soon..thanks o much for your recipe kiwitrish
