I have been excited to make this recipe ever since I saw the recipe rotation for March. I read the P&Q's and almost everyone said it was an easy and straightforward recipe and tasted delicious. I made the cake as per the recipe and it was very straightforward. The recipe called for Lemon Marmalade which i could not find anywhere (to be honest i didn't know there was such a thing as lemon marmalade, i thought it was only oranges). I wanted to keep the lemon flavour strong so didn't use the orange marmalade and skipped the glaze. I decided to make lemon curd to go with the cake. I don't why but having never made lemon curd before i had the notion that it was really complicated with lot's of steps. How wrong i was! So easy, i will definitely make this again!
Instead of one big cake i used my 4 inch spring-forms and was able to make 3 cakes. One for me, one each for my friends Sandy and Tracey. The only thing with my cake, and this seems to happen to every cake i make, they domed and cracked. I'd love to make a perfectly flat topped cake. Hmm, i'll have to keep practicing ;)
The first bite i took i liked it but wasn't too impressed by it. Then i took some of the yogurt i had left over and a spoonful of the lemon curd and ate it together with the cake.......
.....absolutely delicious! As you can see from the photos, both my sons really like this cake. Actually, they liked it before i baked it, they were fighting over the batter :)
