Citrus Madeira Cake



This was a recipe from Marie in the first week of the Great British Bake Off (GBBO), which can be found on the BBC website;

On the BBC food website, they tend to publish 5 recipes from each weeks’ episode so it’s pot luck whether the one you really fancied making is up or not but it’s definitely worth a look.

Anyway, back to the cake…

The madeira cake was really tasty with a lovely texture. Glazing and decoration made it look very pretty but did add lots of time to the overall bake. The recipe suggests 1 to 2 hours overall bake time but it felt like it took me all afternoon! I’d definitely make this again, but I’d probably skip the glaze and the rind on top.
