Today I baked a cake for the first time in ages. We are going out for the day tomorrow and taking a picnic so I thought I would try a recipe I found HERE on Green Cooking Blog for lemon drizzle sponge with lime buttercream.
Out came my trusty mixer I’m unsure how old it is but I am 35 and it belonged to my Nan who passed away when I was 7!
I followed the recipe except I put the buttercream in the middle as it’s less messy to eat!
I baked as one sponge though, just so I could try out the cotton cutting method….look how straight it is!
The buttercream is beautiful, I’m not usually a buttercream fan but the lime juice stops it being to sickly.
It’s a huge hit with everyone, hope there is some left for our picnic tomorrow!
Thanks for posting the recipe Will!
