Clotted Cream Filled Lemon Cake is just perfect for spring. Light lemon cake layers are sandwiched with tangy lemon curd and the silky clotted cream.

I thought the cake was at its absolute best the day it was made. Whipped cream would be a terrific stand in for the clotted cream, too.

Ingredients:

225g butter, softened
225g/1 cup sugar
225g/1 3/4 cups self-raising flour, sifted
Zest of 1 large lemon
4 large eggs
6 Tbs good-quality lemon curd
150g Cornish clotted cream
Confectioners’ sugar, for dusting

Directions:

1. Preheat oven to 180°C/350°F.

2. Grease two 18cm/8 inch cake tins and line the base of each with a circle of greaseproof or parchment paper.

3. Place the butter in a large mixing bowl and add the sugar. Beat together with an electric mixer until the mixture is very light and fluffy.

4. In a separate bowl, combine the flour and lemon zest.

5. Beat the eggs into the creamed butter mixture, one at a time, adding a spoonful of the flour with each one to prevent it from curdling. Fold in the remaining flour until you have a soft, smooth cake batter.

6. Divide the batter between the tins and level the tops with the back of a spoon.

7. Bake for 25 minutes or until the cakes spring back when pressed gently with a finger and are pale golden.

8. Leave the cakes to cool in the tins for 10 minutes before removing and leaving to cool completely on a wire rack. When cool enough to handle slice each one in half.

9. Place one cake slice upside down on a stand or plate. Spread with half the lemon curd, sandwich with another slice of cake and add a thick layer of clotted cream. Top with another slice of cake and more lemon curd, then finish with a final layer of cake.

10. Dust the top of the assembled cake with confectioners’ sugar and serve.

This new song from UK-based band Animal Noise is an interesting tune. ‘Sink Or Swim’ starts off making you think you missed the very beginning of the song. It meanders from kind of quiet to all out messy when it is time for the chorus. It’s great.

Check out Animal Noise on the band’s Website where you can learn of upcoming shows in the UK and link to buy their music.

Cheers!
