Nigella's Mum In Law Madeira Cake (Nigella马德拉蛋糕)


正当我烦着着落娜娜明早的早餐时,
银幕上突然出现Lena家的“跟随烘#79 :家婆马德拉蛋糕”。
因为名字的特别,引起我好奇它的口感,
所以,这回的“跟随烘 ”,我参与了。
I was wondering what to get NaNak for breakfast when I stumbled upon Lena's blog:
"Bake-Along #79 : Mother-In-Law's Madeira Cake"
The unique name of the cake made me really curious,
therefore I decided to jump onto the Bake-Along #79 bandwagon too!



根据维基百科,
马德拉蛋糕是英国人的一款传统海面蛋糕。
According to Wikipedia,
Madeira cake is a sponge cake in traditional English cookery.
 马德拉蛋糕拥有密实但轻盈的蛋糕体。它实际上比较倾向磅蛋糕。这充满柠檬香气的蛋糕,一般都会选择下午茶或早餐享用。
The Madeira cake has a firm yet light texture. It is rather similar to a pound cake, and is eaten with tea or for breakfast and is typically flavoured with lemon.



Nigella's Mum In Law Madeira Cake
Ingredients ( from How to be a Domestic Goddess, Nigella Lawson )
in a 9x5 inch loaf pan
225gm softened butter
170gm sugar, plus extra for sprinkling
grated zest and juice from 1 lemon
3 large eggs
166gm self raising flour
62g plain flour

Directions
Preheat oven to 177C and line the loaf pan with baking paper. Using the paddle attachment on your mixer on medium speed,  cream the butter and sugar until light, then add in the lemon zest. Add the eggs one at a time with a tablespoon of the flour for each. Then lower the speed and mix in the rest of the flour and lemon juice and mix till well incorporated.




根据维基百科,葡萄牙盛产一款酒 - 马德拉酒。
十九世纪的英国人喜欢享用这款酒时,搭上数片这款蛋糕,
因此后来这款蛋糕也就被称为马德拉蛋糕。
 It is named after Madeira wine, a Portuguese wine, 
which is usually served with this cake, 
and was very popular in England during the nineteenth century.



有着磅蛋糕的密实,又有海面蛋糕的轻盈。
表层是香甜酥脆,蛋糕体充满柠檬香气,
这蛋糕一拍好照就不见三分之一,它的美味就不用置疑了。
感谢Lene,JoyceZoe的美好分享,让我和家人都受惠了。
As dense as a pound cake, yet also as soft as a sponge cake. This lemony cake with its crispy skin was so tempting, a third of it was gone immediately after I finished with the pictures! 
Thanks alot to Lena, Joyce and Zoe for this wonderful recipe, my family and I love it!

  5. Aunty Young, Your cake looks so beautiful, mine lost all the crispy top when I cut into it! Overall, tasted just like poundcake except more lemony. As for your blog problem, it's still there. I just tried clicking in from your Recipes list on your site and it brought me to an online casino site!
