Lemon curd teacake

(Recipe from this blogpost)

Let me just say that this cake is PERFECT for lazy bums like me who can’t be bothered with presentation. It looked dreadful before I put it in the oven but came out looking practically shop-worthy! It tastes lovely too and it’s so easy to make.

I made the lemon curd first and set it aside to cool, while I made my cake mix. Having never made lemon curd before, I decided to follow the recipe exactly, but I reduced the sugar quantity in the cake mix.

Ingredients

Lemon Curd
60g lemon juice
60g butter
110g sugar
1 egg

Cake Mix
150g self-raising flour
60g butter
80g sugar
1 egg

Method

– To make the lemon curd, pop all of the curd ingredients into your Thermomix bowl and cook for 5 mins/100 degrees/speed 4. Remove and set aside.

– Preheat your oven to 180 degrees celcius.

– Rinse and dry your TMX bowl. Pop your cake mix ingredients in the bowl, and combine for 30 secs/speed 5.

– Line a tray with baking paper, and spread out half the cake mix evenly on the base. There didn’t seem to be a lot of cake mix so I actually didn’t spread it across the entire base.

– Pour the curd over the base. It will be a bit runny, but don’t worry.

– Dollop teaspoonfuls of the mixture onto the top of your curd. I wish I could tell you that the picture below captures the efforts of a three-year-old, but sadly this is the creation of a grown-ass woman.

– Bake for 30 mins. The self-raising flour will work its magic and you’ll end up with a rustic cake that’s full of jammy, lemony goodness! I can’t wait to make this again.

Lemon cake

It’s a conspiracy.

I made a pretty decent lemon cake, took photos during the process, started writing about it here, but for the life of me I can’t seem to find the webpage with the recipe! I’ve looked EVERYWHERE and done various Google searches and ZERO. Zilch. Zip. Nada.

I may be going batshit crazy.

So best I can do at this stage is to post the pictures, tell you the cake was good, give another lemon cake recipe a go so I can put a proper post up, and save the damn web addresses moving forward.

Argh. Totally perplexed.
