Weekly Bake-Off - Madeira Cake

I love a bit of cooking, especially if it involves cake so the weekly bake off sounded perfect for me!
Each week a recipe is chosen from Mary Berry's 100 Cakes and Bakes book and we have until Sunday evening to submit our entries via Twitter (@WeeklyBakeOff). This week Page 39, Madeira cake was the selection.

I loved how the recipe was simpe which meant the children made the majority of it. I literally measured everything and the Mini Mes added it all to a bowl in one go and combined it together without the added hassle of sifting flour and adding bits in a certain order.


The recommended baking time was 60-75 minutes and we found with our oven it was done after an hour (tested with a skewer). It's so light and fluffy - yummy!
