Nigella's Mother in-law Madeira Cake ~马德拉蛋糕

It;s Bake Along time again. This round Bake Along #79 event is baking My Mother-in-law's Madeira Cake. This recipe is from the book of How to be a Domestic Goddess by Nigella Lawson or here. So you know it is her mother-in-law. It is interesting, isn't it? To find out how does this interesting cake taste like? i have to bake one.
This cake has a firm, yet light texture. It is nice to eat with tea and it is traditionally flavored with lemon. It is a sponge cake in traditional English cookery. (want know more about the history of this cake here

I baked 2/3 of the original recipe to suit a slim, long loaf tin that i have. I am glad that the cake turn out so well. Happy~ ^_^ ~
为了配合我的长又高挑的模子就把食谱减成2/3的分量。做出来的效果好好,很开心呀!


香喷喷呀!! 马德拉岛蛋糕好好吃!虽然是命名为马德拉岛蛋糕但这蛋糕不是来自马德拉岛。
是来自葡萄牙,通常做成长条状。 19世纪蛋糕造成后,传统都是以马德拉酒同奉上,但现在则用茶。 蛋糕是类似一款简单的磅蛋糕。组织幼细,松而富有浓郁的奶油和柠檬香气。


My Mother-in -law's Madeira Cake
Recipe adapted from How To Be a Domestic Goddess or here
makes 1 loaf (i scale down to 2/3 from the original portion for my 27cm long x 23 cm width and 3 cm height loaf pan)

Ingredients:
180g unsalted butter, at room temperature
105g castor sugar
grated zest and juice of 1/2 a lemon (wash with some salt to get rid of the wax)
2 'B' eggs
158g self raising flour (i don't have self raising flour; i added 2 tsp baking powder to 158g plain flour)
68g plain flour

To Do:
  1. Buttered and lined a loaf tin. 
  2. Cream butter and sugar, and add in lemon zest.
  3. Add in eggs, one at a time, with a tablespoon of flour for each.
  4. Then gently mix in the rest of the flour and finally the lemon juice.
  5. Sprinkle with castor sugar (i used 1 tablespoon only) as it goes into the oven and bake for 1 hour or until the cake-tester comes out clean.
  6.  Let the cake cool on wire rack, before turning it out.
