Mary's White Wonder Cake.....



When I saw this cake in Mary's blog,  One Perfect Bite, I was so impressed I just had to try it out. The cake on it's own is not very tasty as shortening is used instead of butter....the secret is in the lemon curd and icing! So you'll really have to ice it before eating.  I have adjusted the sweetness according to my taste.


See the mess I'd made with the icing? I am just not good at it...but the taste is so delicious!
Mmmmm....the lemon curd gives the cake a tangy flavor which I like very much....great with a cup of tea.
Thanks again Mary, for sharing your recipe:D

  2. I'm not good at icing either, will definitely make a mess out of it. Saw your comment in Angie's blog re pastry flour. You can go into my blog and on the side bar, under Ingredient Substitution, you can find a substitute for pastry flour. Hope you'll find this useful! Have a great weekend!

  9. I agreed with you ladies that the lemon curd is a perfect addition for this cake...it blends nicely into the cake to make it moist. The icing provides further sweetness for this otherwise very bland cake.

    Thank you for visiting and hope you have a great weekend...cheers!

  17. Well I do have a few lemons left over from my 'Limoncello' experiment. Hmm...maybe I could try this. Thanks for your candid opinion on the shortening to maybe be re-thought in the next cake...I fully agree;0)
    Flavourful wishes, Claudia

  18. @Foodessa...this is the first time I am using shortening to bake a cake...I do have reservations about it but figured the curd and icing should be good enough to balance off the blandness, so I went ahead. It does taste good!
