Happy mother’s Day!!

Hello! Even though you probably aren’t my mother ( but if you are, hello mummy!)…anyway…I still say HAPPY MOTHER’S DAY!!! Xxx Now, I have a Finnish cake recipe which will be ideal for mother’s day and it’s fresh from the Clandestine cake club book! It is a lemon cake, and it is SUPER easy to make but the frosting could prove tricky! Xxx So, here it is:

5 eggs

200g caster sugar

150g plain flour

1tsp of baking powder

4 tbsp of potato flour( don’t ask!!)

Lemon syrup

juice of 2 lemons

150g icing sugar!

Filling

200ml double cream

200g mascarpone

2 tbsp icing sugar

325 lemon curd (plus extra for decoration-optional)

Icing

600ml double cream

1 tbsp vanilla caster sugar or custard powder

 

Method

1.Preheat the oven to 180c/160 fan/gas mark. Grease and line a cake tin.

2.Whisk the eggs with the sugar until pale, light and doubled in volume. 

3.In a separate bowl mix the dry ingredients and then sift that on top of the egg mixture in two batches(don’t ask me why!?). Fold it all together!

4.Pour the mixture into the tin and bake for 35-45 minutes until risen and golden!

5.Meanwhile make the syrup. Combine the lemon juice and the sugar in a pan and wait until the sugar is dissolved.Set aside to cool!

6. Cool your cake.Cut the cooled cake into three equal layers and over each layer pour over the lemon syrup. Don’t put too much on or else it will be really soggy! 

7. Make the filling. Whisk the cream until thick and stiff, whisk in everything else so that the mixture is smooth!

Assemble

1.Put the first layer on a work surface and put the filling over it and then the lemon curd. Repeat until all of the layers are filled except from the top  one. Make the icing by whipping the cream until piping consistency and add the vanilla sugar or custard powder. Then pipe the mixture onto the cake. Put some lemon curd in a small bag and pipe flowers on top of the cake, then decorate with sugar paste flowers, if you wish.

Woo! That took me a long time to write! Anyway, HAPPY MOTHER’S DAY! <3! 🙂 😀 !!
