A special valentines cake

This gin and lemon is the ultimate cake for moist yumminess- there really is no secret to moist cakes, they always have a syrup poured over just after removing from the oven. Leave the cake in the tin and refridgerate for at least an hour. You risk the whole bundle of moistness falling apart on you if you impatient!

I baked this one in two heart shaped tins, sandwiched together with fresh (Thermomix) lemon curd, and decorated with raspberries and cream cheese icing. The sharp lemon taste really needs that icing to balance the flavours.

I make mine in the Thermomix using the whisk after softening the butter at 50°. You can of course make a delicious light cake batter in a stand mixer.


Wishing you all a cake enhanced Valentine day!

Welcome to my blog! After a L O N G break from blogging during which Instagram (vannilla)took over my life, I am returning in a more varied format. Yes, I will bake and have been a Thermomix users from the days before it was cult-like. I'll share the best but I will also include that other hobby in my life, photography from my small island and beyond. If you like what you see, I'd love to hear from you! Anne
