Lemon and Almond Cake and a Giveaway #33

 This cake is the one I had wanted to make for CTs birthday – he likes these flavours and they seem sort of light and summery somehow. Fates conspired as they often do and he ended up not getting a birthday cake at all – well not until now anyway. I’ve been awaiting delivery of a much coveted silicone cake mould from the ingenious Mustard. I have seen several cakes made with it on the internet over the last few weeks and I was keen to try it for myself. Its scalloped edges resemble a daisy flower which cunningly, when cut into six slices, comes out in a series of heart shapes. As well as being quite sturdy for a silicone mould, it’s nice and deep too, so it can make one very deep cake or can be cut into two or even three and sandwiched with something delicious.

No sooner did it arrive than I was busy in the kitchen with bowl and wooden spoon, humming a tune as I whipped and folded. I dithered for a little as to whether I should use white or dark chocolate in this cake. I was going to use white initially as it’s nice to have a pale sponge from time to time, but in the end I thought a few flecks of very dark bitter chocolate would help take the edge off the sweetness.

It was one of those days when everything seems to go wrong and it probably wasn’t the most auspicious for making a cake. I managed to burn our first crop of beetroot and my favourite saucepan was a complete write-off. However, despite leaving the cake in the oven five minutes more than intended, the slightly darkened top hid a light, moist, buttery and most delicious sponge. The top was in fact very tasty with a satisfying caramalised nutty crunch to it. CT was so impressed he had to have a second slice immediately after finishing his first – that was a 2nd of the half slices I hasten to add. The heart slices looked very impressive, but they are also rather on the generous side. Half a slice of this rather large cake is fine for most, though obviously not for CT.

PS – Having sampled a little more on day two, I have come to the conclusion that this is one of the most delicious cakes I’ve baked in a long time. It must be that heart – I’m in love.

You can see more reviews and recipes using this mould here:

As this was a belated birthday cake for CT whose birthday is at the height of summer and with the heart shaped slices denoting love, I am sending this to Calendar Cakes where the theme is Summer Lovin. This is a monthly challenge hosted alternately by Dolly Bakes and Laura Loves Cakes.

I’m also entering this into Javelin Warrior’s Made with Love Mondays, whereby all entries must be made entirely from scratch.

Print
Ingredients
  1. 250g Unsalted butter
  2. 250g Golden caster sugar (I used cardamom sugar)
  3. 3 Duck eggs (large hens eggs are fine)
  4. 1 Lemon – zest and juice
  5. 200g Flour (I used half wholemeal & half plain white)
  6. 2 tsp Baking powder
  7. 1/2 tsp Bicarbonate of soda
  8. 75g Ground almonds
  9. 25g Very dark chocolate (I used 100% cocoa solids) – grated
  10. 25g Flaked almonds
  11. 2 tbsp Demerara sugar
Instructions
  1. Cream butter and sugar together until pale and fluffy.
  2. Grate in the lemon zest and cream some more.
  3. Beat in the eggs one by one.
  4. Sift in the dry ingredients and stir gently until just incorporated.
  5. Stir in the lemon juice.
  6. Gently stir in the chocolate.
  7. Spoon into a 23 cm cake mould or better still an I Love Cake mould.
  8. Mix the demerara sugar and flaked almonds together then scatter over the top of the cake.
  9. Bake at 180°C for 35 minutes or until a cake tester comes out clean. Leave to cool for 15 minutes, then turn out onto a wire rack covered in greaseproof paper to avoid the rack pattern being imprinted onto the cake.

    Gorgeous cake C. I love the lemon and almond combo too. It’s very sophisticated I think. The dark choc must make it even more so. My cake came out very dark too. I think it’s such a large cake mould I wasn’t sure how long to let it cook. Still tasted damn fine. Thanks for the link x

    My husband has been so wonderfully helpful and supportive recently he really deserves a heart shaped cake. In fact I might even make him a coffee flavoured one, which I detest, just to show it’s all for him

    Boring i know, but … Hubby! He makes me feel special every day, he’s kind, he drives me crazy sometimes, and i wouldn’t change him for the world. So i would bake his favourite lemon drizzle cake in the heart-shaped mould because he deserves it x

    I love to use the mould and make a chocolate cake and split it in half and give one half to my husband and one half to my son! And when I say husband, I’d probably eat it myself! 🙂
