Hello Lucy
Many thanks for this recipe. The first time when I was in Dorset with my parents in 1987 at the age of 16, we also visited the Tearoom at Ford Abbey. My mother ate there a very delicious and juicy orange cake. Since that time I think I baked about 100 cakes but at no time I found the right recipe. But now I saw your recipe and baked it with two oranges instead of two lemons and my mother was very enthused. She said it tasted just like the cake in Ford Abbey. So after 26 years finally I found the right cake recipe for my mother and it makes her really happy.


Thank you for sharing this recipe. I've just tried it... yum yum :)


Hi Lucy,

Querida Lucy!! Hace más de un año que disfruto de tus trabajos, son simplemente MARAVOLLOSOS!Estoy feliz de haberte conocido. Me has enseñado mucho! Saludos desde Argentina.


Love your blog. Love all things 'lemon'. I copied the recipe and since I'm from the US, I'll need to translate the amounts but by then I'll know the recipe by heart. :)

looks yummy thank you for sharing I may make that this week :)


I found this site for the conversion. I'm going to give it a go.


Hi Lucy
Thank you for the recipe, it looks delicious!


Oh I have that lovely book, bought it after watching the TV series years and years and years ago!

The soft gingerbread recipe is fab and is in the oven as we speak!


In the oven just now, I trust you, should be yummm !


I just tried it yesterday and it was awesome. Such an easy yet delicious recipe.



Oh, and to substitute our US "sugar" to caster sugar, run it through the blender until it is fine but not powdered.

I found this on the web today.

I've just made this with Gluten-free Flour subbed in, and it worked out pretty well :o)
I think the drizzling to keep it moist really helps with the flour mix, which can be a bit powdery.

Made this at the weekend and it was delicious! Thank you so much for such an easy-to-follow recipe.


I made it a while ago LUcy and it was very nice indeed , thanks again!


I just tried this with oranges and it's pretty yummy this way too.


Oh gosh, I made this for dessert tonight - just let it cool a little bit, had a bigish piece warm with ice cream. Delicious! Thank you for sharing it.
