    I love lemony things, will have to try those. 😉

  2. Me too – I think I was trying to recreate the texture of the fab Lemon Poppyseed Muffins that I grab every time I see the California Market Bakery stall at a market. Perhaps I’ll have to add some poppy seeds next time…

    Caroline, check out Rachel Allen’s chocolate, caramel & hazelnut bars for next week. Val’s kitchen has them in the archives. Sinful!!! Love lemon and these look fab!

  4. Oooh! That sounds really good, Sarah. I’ve a whole kilner jar of hazlenuts at my disposal at the moment so any recipes are very welcome. Will definitely go looking for that one.

    I was just thinking about some kind of lemony dessert 🙂 These look fab. I feel a baking session coming on…The kids chocolate party cake in Annie Bell’s book is also pretty good – I used to make it for the ‘big kids’ at work all the time and it went down well.

    I make something similar in a loaf tin. Your idea to make it in a tray is much better. You would get more crunchy top to soft cake.

  7. That cookbook is great, isn’t it, Jen? I saw it in Books for Cooks at the weekend and had to resist pushing it on my fellow browsers!I can imagine it would be great in a loaf tin, too, Barbara, although I have to say that it lasted very succesfully made in my ever-useful swiss roll tin. As the week went along it stopped being crunchy, the sugar just dissolving into the cake and making it nicely moist.

    Glad to hear that, Byrony. It’s ages since I made it but, now you’ve reminded me, I think I’ll have to go back into my own archives!
