Madeira Cake

A. loves having a slice of Madeira cake with a cup of tea but we have not had much luck lately with the supermarket variety. He put a request in for this cake some time ago so last night I baked one based on Nigella's mother-in-law's recipe as found in HTBDG. Madeira cake is supposed to improve with time, so I made it last night for a dinner that mum&dad are hosting tonight.

Madeira Cake
240g softened butter, 200g caster sugar, grated zest and juice of 1 lemon, 3 large eggs, 210 SR flour, 90g plain flour
  1. Cream butter and sugar then add lemon zest
  2. Add eggs, one at a time, with a tablespoon of flour between each addition
  3. Gently mix in rest of the flour followed by the lemon juice
  4. Pour into lined loaf tin and sprinkle with caster sugar before popping into oven at 170C for 1 hour
