  • 1/2 lemon, zest only, finely grated

Recipe's preparation

  1. 1. Preheat oven to 160'C/140'C fan forced. Grease and line a 5cm deep, 23cm round cake pan.


    2. Add lemon zest and caster sugar to bowl. Blitz 15 seconds/speed 10.


    3. Add butter, white chocolate, vanilla and milk to bowl. Melt for 5 minutes/55 degrees/speed 3 or until melted and combined.


    4. With blades rotating on speed 3, add the eggs one at a time through the opening in the lid. 


    5. Add flours to bowl and mix 10 seconds/speed 5. Scrape down sides of bowl and mix a further 5 seconds/speed 5 or until smooth and combined.


    6. Pour into prepared tin and bake for 1.5-2 hours (may need longer) or until a skewer inserted into the centre has moist crumbs clinging to it (not completely clean). 


    7. Allow to cool in pan for 20 minutes (I leave mine overnight) before turning onto a wire rack to cool. 


  2. Ganache
  3. 1. Add chocolate and zest to bowl and blitz for 8 seconds/speed 9. 


    2. Add sour cream to bowl and heat for 3 minutes/50 degrees/speed 3. Scrape down sides of bowl and heat 30 seconds/50 degrees/speed 3.


    3. Allow to cool to a spreadable consistency. 


    4. Top cake with cooled ganache.

For shelf stable ganache, add the sour cream first and bring to boiling point (2-3 minutes/speed 2.5/105 degrees.)

Then add remaining ingredients and follow steps for ganache from step 2. May use less time.


For something a little different, add a handful of raspberries to the ganache instead of zest for a twist.

    Yummy cake and ganache.
    My husband said ‘i am on a diet and we can taste the cake, but then maybe we will give it away’.
    Then after tasting ‘ok, maybe we will keep it and eat it...’
    Enough said.

    i will make this for a fondant decorated cake going forward.

    I haven't yet taken a decent photo of the inside of this cake, but as soon as I do, I will update the picture. It's a beautiful cake that I use for my cake decorating. The sugar content could be lessened but it may effect the texture of the overall cake.
