The Mothership’s Lemon Cake with JM’s Lemon Curd

28 Sep


Continuing today’s productivity, and using JM’s delicious lemon curd I am now onto the Mothership’s Lemon Cake! I was about the claim that the recipe is dairy-free, however having just watched JM making the lemon curd, I see that it contains butter, so it IS gluten-free but not dairy-free though I did use dairy-free spread, so the amount of dairy in the cake is minimal.


Mum made this for me for my brother’s birthday, so I know it is a good gluten free cake to make, I think because it is so moist due to the lemon curd there is less of a risk of it all drying out, as some gluten-free cakes do.

This is another very easy cake to bake, an all-in-one recipe (you may have started to notice these are my speciality… I am not a fan of overcomplicating things, or washing up!). I think it’s probably the first cake I ever made, and it is oh, so tasty!



7.5oz x gluten free self raising flour

51/4oz x caster sugar

1/2 tsp xanthan gum

4 x medium eggs

6oz dairy free margarine

4 tbsp lemon curd

grated rind of one lemon


juice of 1 lemon

2 tbsp caster sugar



  • Preheat the oven to 160 degrees C
  • Add all of the cake ingredients to a bowl
  • Mix all the ingredients together until a smooth batter forms – make sure you beat in a lot of air
  • Pour mixture into one or two greased and lined cake tins
  • Bake in a pre-heated oven at 160 degrees for 40 minutes
  • Once removed from the oven, mix the sugar and lemon juice together and pour over the top of the cake.
  • Wait until the cake has cooled before removing from the tin.

It’s great with a cup of Earl Grey tea!
