A delicious zingy lemon and lime bundt cake, just the job with a cuppa on a winter’s afternoon!
Preheat your oven to 160C/gas mark 3. Grease and line a cake tin in preparation. If you are using a shaped tin, apply a layer of butter followed by a dusting of flour to stop the cake sticking to the sides.
Cream together the caster sugar and margarine until light and fluffy. Sieve in the flour, add the eggs and lemon zest, and whisk until well combined. Pour the cake mix into the prepared tin and bake for 60-70 minutes, or until a skewer inserted into the centre comes out clean.
Remove the cake from the oven and leave to cool on a wire rack. If you have used a shaped tin, remove the cake from the tin, let it cool for 2 minutes, and then pop it back in the tin until it is completely cold. This will prevent the cake from losing its shape.
For the icing, whisk together the icing sugar, zest, and lime juice. If the icing is still a little thick, add some water a spoonful at a time until it loosens up. Drizzle over the top of the cake using a fork.
- Although this cake is best enjoyed immediately, it stores beautifully for up to seven days in an airtight container.
