Fourth time was clearly a charm.
Tartarus has pronounced it 'Damn Tasty' which is the ultimate accolade. And I can confirm that it is a gorgeous slice of sharp lemony moistness. The cake equivalent of Dorothy Parker.
Please ignore the 70s Holly Hobby cutting board. I really need to be sponsored by Lakeland Plastics - my kit is so old that it probably wasn't even mine to start off with lol!
I worked out why the camera was taking everything in 'soft focus' - the lens was smeared with butter *guilty face*

What exactly is it?
Lemon Polenta Cake?
French Toast smothered in lemon curd?
It does look nice, and I'm glad that Tartarus enjoyed it.
Wasn't Kevin a bit jealous?
TSB it is a most tasty cake made with 6 eggs, 250g ground almonds, 250g caster sugar, 3 lemons (boiled until soft, pips removed and whizzed to tiny shreds) and a teaspoon of baking powder. This is my fourth attempt - the other three attempts were catalogued elsewhere in The Larder.Delete
It's a Claudia Roden recipe originally for Oranges, not lemons. But I luff a spot of lemony goodness :-D Kevin knows nothing about this. He's still there - checked on him yesterday. Still no mould :-D
yaaaay you ! *does Kermit wavy arms*ReplyDelete

I am suitably impressed! Your perseverance has paid off, well done you!ReplyDelete
Butter on the lens, you say? I might try that for my photos, I could do with a bit of soft focus some days... xx
It certainly gave things a bit of a glow.....but I faffed about with the settings for AGES before I actually took a look at the lens itself - manky, absolutely manky!ReplyDelete
I cannot believe that it it has taken me four goes to get it right, but it IS damned tasty!Delete
Ah, the well known butter-lens.ReplyDelete
The cake looks delicious. Almonds and lemon are a yummy combination.
Butter on the lens fairly does the job if you want a sort of outer glow effect, Rubbish for photographing popeye!Delete
It looks very tasty - perseverance can work!ReplyDelete
I may have to make it once a month just to make sure that I neffer forget how to do it, Siobhan!Delete
I'm catching up and you've gone and turned into a foodie blog - who'd have thought? Well done looks delish xxxReplyDelete
It WAS delish, but it's taken 4 attempts to make it look delish!ReplyDelete
Can recommend it as a cake!
