Spanish Lemon Cake with Lemon Curd Cream and Raspberries

By In Recipes
A little baking session resulting in Spanish Lemon Cake with Lemon Curd Cream and Raspberries. Looks a bit girly if you ask me – all those raspberries neatly circling the top. Still, tasted bloody nice. The basic sponge recipe is taken from the Spanish cookbook, 1080 Recipes, doubled to make two layers. The creamy middle is a tub of double cream whipped to stiffness with half a jar of lemon curd folded in. Sweet indeed thus requiring the raspberries to add a little tartness. I’m on my second huge slice…

    Thanks everyone. I resisted having a slice for breakfast the other day! ๐Ÿ™‚
    The cook book I am still delving through; some recipes seem a bit basic and simple (even to me) perceptively so perhaps. I see in the latest issue of Delicious (I think) that Gordon Ramsey lists the book as being in his top 10 recipe books; a good enough recommendation to me!

    That looks stunning. Theres no reason why you can’t enjoy good looking food. Berries are naturally pink and pretty, its not like you decorated it with pink sugar roses ๐Ÿ™‚

    I was going to say this cake looks elegant, but I guess girly works too ๐Ÿ˜‰

    This really looks like a wonderful cake. I know that I’m probably in the minority, but I much prefer a fruit based cake than a heavy chocolate. Lemon is one of my favorites. That sinful cream is the clincher for me!

    This cake looks amazing. The lemon curd oozing under the layers is to die for.
