  • Delicious cake!...

    Delicious cake!
    I didnt have a bundt tin so used a 10 inch spring form tin. Next time I will invest in a bundt tin. I couldnt see where is said to add the juice only the rind so I added the juice of the lime and lemon which totaled approx 40ml and topped up with 60ml milk to = 100ml liquid.

    The cake is delicious when you use SR flour, the ingrediens say "SR sugar", an error I think? Makes a big difference to the cake though!

  • I LOVE this cake. Have made it several times now...

    Submitted by 9-5Nan on 19. January 2017 - 10:04.

    I LOVE this cake. Have made it several times now both as cupcakes and a bundt cake. Making the large cake, I like to pierce the cake on the top with a skewer when it comes out of the oven and pour a simple citrus syrup over the top (wait 10 mins before turning it out onto the wire rack). MMMM delicious as a dessert served with whipped cream. This recipe is just so versatile to tweek using yoghurt instead of ricotta, grapefruit/orange instead of lemon/lime etc ... whatever combination it is always a success.

  • Used Greek yogurt. Delicious.

    Submitted by maddymoody on 6. October 2015 - 15:18.

    Used Greek yogurt. Delicious. I did not have any ricotta, so used the same amount of Greek yogurt and 180 grams brown sugar and it really brings out the citrus flavour. 

    A lovely moist cake, will try with ricotta next time

    Just need to update recipe for the following:

    1. Butter - is this a tbsp or 60 grams? I used the latter

    2. Update step re adding lemon/lime to include juice as well as rind

    Submitted by Charlimg on 9. April 2015 - 16:27.

    Hello foreverthermo, Yes, flour was definately missing in my ingredient list - am so very sorry - my bad!

    Please try making it again.  I make this so often as its easy and so very delicious!! 

    Yes, you are correct, I should have speed 4 with using the butterfly whisk (I have corrected this), I dont know why I put 5!

  • I made this cake, however,

    Submitted by thermomazingang on 1. March 2015 - 21:51.

    I made this cake, however, have a question.  Is there flour missing from the ingredients list?  When I made it it was very dense and did not have a cake like structure at all - it was about half the size of the cake pictured. I even added 1/2 cup flour because the mixture was so runny.  The texture was more like a cheesecake - but SO DELICIOUS.  I would definitely make again but rather as mini cheesecakes as opposed to a big cake. Also, just be aware of using the butterfly at Speed 5 like the method suggests - it should be max Speed 4 only.
