Makes: one 8-inch round cake (8 to 10 slices)

  • 175 grams (3/4 cup) superfine sugar
  • 175 grams (6 ounces) butter, at room temperature
  • 340 grams (12 ounces) lemon curd (or freshly made)
  • 3 eggs
  • 225 grams (scant 2 cups) self-rising flour
  • Confectioners' sugar, for dusting
  1. Preheat the oven to 375° F (190° C). Line an 8-inch round cake pan with parchment paper.
  2. Beat the sugar and butter until well mixed, then add half the jar of lemon curd. Mix well.
  3. Beat in the eggs one at a time.
  4. Sift over the flour and fold in using a metal spoon.
  5. Turn the mixture into the prepared pan, then drop teaspoons of the remaining lemon curd randomly over the top of the cake.
