Serves 12


  • 225g of self-raising flour
  • 2 tsp of baking powder
  • 225g of Stork With Butter
  • 225g of golden caster sugar
  • 4 large free range eggs
  • 1 lemon, juice and grated zest
  • 200g of soft cheese
  • 2 tbsp of icing sugar, plus extra for dusting
  • 1 tbsp of milk
  • 100g of lemon curd


  1. Grease and line the bases of 2 x 20cm cake tins. Preheat the oven to 180ºC, gas mark 4.
  2. Place the flour, baking powder, Stork, sugar, eggs and lemon juice and zest in a large bowl, and whisk for 2-3 minutes until smooth and creamy.
  3. Divide the mixture equally between the tins, and bake for 20-25 minutes until golden and just firm. Leave to cool in the tins for a few minutes, then turn out and allow to cool completely.
  4. Meanwhile, in a bowl beat together the soft cheese, icing sugar and milk until soft enough to spread. Gently ripple this mixture through the lemon curd.
  5. Using a bread knife, cut the cake in half horizontally to give 4 layers. Use the lemon curd mixture to sandwich the cakes together into a tall stack. Dust lightly with icing sugar to serve.
