Serve With A Glass Of Madeira Wine!
Difficulty: Easy
Prep Time: 30 minutes
Cooking Time: 1 hour


2 sticks unsalted butter (softened)
1 cup superfine sugar + sprinkling
grated zest and juice of 1 unwaxed lemon
3 large eggs
1 1/3 cups self-raising flour
2/3 cup almond flour
1 cup candied lemon peel (optional)
1/4 cup Madeira wine

Cooking Tools

Large mixing bowl

Parchment paper

Loaf pan

Hand mixer

Preheat the oven to 325ºF. Butter and line bottom of loaf pan with parchment paper cut to fit. Cream the butter and sugar, and add the lemon zest. Add the eggs one at a time with a tablespoon of the flour for each. Then gently mix in the rest of the flour, Almond flour and, finally, the lemon juice and wine.  Place batter into greased prepared pan. Sprinkle with superfine sugar (about 2 tablespoons should do it) as it goes into the oven, and bake for 1 hour or until a cake-tester comes out clean. Remove to a wire rack, and let cool in the tin before turning out. Place candied lemon peels on top and serve with a glass of Madeira wine.
