This was the recipe I used today for the lemon curd tea cake that everyone enjoyed.

Cake mixture

  • 300 grams Self Raising Flour
  • 120 grams Butter
  • 150 grams sugar
  • 2 egg

Lemon curd

  • 120 grams lemon juice
  • 120 grams Butter
  • 150 grams sugar
  • 2 egg

Place all ingredients into a large bowl and beat well with electric mixer or food processor.
Lemon Curd:
Place all ingredients into a saucepan and whisk over medium-high heat until mixture boils and thickens slightly about 4 minutes.

Grease and line a round cake pan.
Spread half of the cake mixture over the bottom of the pan.
Pour lemon curd over cake mixture.
Sprinkle dollops of remaining cake mixture over top of lemon curd.
Bake in 180 degree Celsius oven for 1/2 an hour or until cake mixture is cooked through.

Thanks Susan. 

thank you this was delicious!

I got the lucky last piece of that delicious teacake.  It was too good to leave behind.  Thanks Susan

Oi.... there was some kind of ginger cake you promised My Rozie that you would put up too Christa! (She reminded me at the dinner table tonight!)

Yes Christa, I would also love the Ginger Cake Recipe as well.

Thanks so Much for the recipe, I am having a real baking day tomorrow, making your Lemon Cake for Graham along with Special Choc Chip Cookies and Old Fashioned Date and Walnut Cakes. 

Give me a day or so to dig it up, and I will send it to you.

I made your Lemon Cake today and it turned out lovely. It reminded me of a Fruit Cobbler. I managed to get all the recipes made that I said I would do, plus a Humming Bird Cake (one of Graham's favourites). Thanks again for the Recipe

Becky, I would love your Recipe for your Pecan Bikkies, they were Yummy.

and this is what makes our gourmet garden visits so damn good!
