I am more and more into Raymond Blanc’s Kitchen Secrets. Apart from the lemon cake I have also made his vegetable curry and I am planning on using more of his recipes, especially the cakes. Somehow he makes all the things that I considered complex and time consuming into very simple dishes. He also inspired me to experiment.
I had a friend coming for lunch and I decided to repeat the lemon cake but my local shop didn’t have double cream, however they had coconut yogurt and I decided to change the recipe to coconut and lime cake.
The cake came out moist and delicious. I have skipped the apricot jam and just iced it with a warm lime icing. The warmth makes it translucent.
It’s such a simple cake and very quick to make, a perfect last minute baking. As an added bonus it is doable with a baby in one arm!
