Recipe is created for
Zest lemons using sharp knife and peeler. Place zest in clean, dry TM bowl, add sugar and mill 8 seconds/speed 9.
Juice lemons and add 60g juice to bowl. Set aside remaining juice for icing. Add butter and eggs to bowl and cook 8-12 minute/80˚C/speed 3, or until lemon curd has thickened and thickly coats the back of a spoon.
Grease a 9-10" (23-26cm) springform pan.
Preheat oven to 175˚C.
Add flour, sugar and salt to clean, dry TM bowl and mix 5 seconds/speed 5.
Add butter and mix 8-10 seconds/speed 6. Do not over mix, mixture should resemble breadcrumbs. Set aside 1C of this mixture for the streusel topping.
Add baking powder and baking soda and mix 2 seconds/speed 5.
Add buttermilk, egg and vanilla and mix 30 seconds/speed 6 or until mixture is smooth.
Pour half the cake mixture into prepared tin and spread with two-thirds of the lemon curd. Sprinkle with half the blueberries. Dollop remaining cake mixture over the blueberries and top with remaining lemon curd and blueberries.
To make streusel topping, add reserved flour mixture and brown sugar to clean, dry TM bowl and mix 4 seconds/speed 5. Stir through slivered almonds with spatula and sprinkle topping over the lemon curd and blueberries.
Bake 45mins - 1hr 15mins or until cooked (see tips).
Allow cake to cool.
Add icing sugar to clean, dry bowl. Mix 5 seconds/speed 4 to break up any lumps.
Add vanilla and 1 tsp reserved lemon juice. Mix speed 2-3 while adding enough milk through the hole in the lid to make a pouring consistency. Drizzle over cooled cake. Eat!
This cake is best eaten the same day and makes a delicious afternoon tea treat served with tea or coffee.
Cooking time will depend on oven and size of tin. Test with a metal skewer, it should come out reasonably clean (remember the lemon curd will still be gooey even when the cake is cooked). Otherwise touch the cake gently or gently wiggle the tin, when cooked the cake will be firm, when uncooked it will jiggle!This recipe would also be great cooked as muffins or a slice. Adjust cooking time accordingly.
This recipe uses about 3 lemons but the actual number will depend on size and "juiciness". If in doubt, just zest and juice and bunch, use what you need and freeze the rest for next time.
