Madeira unassuming delight

Originally from England, this sponge cake has a firm, yet light texture. By no means fancy or deluxe, but by all means yummy and delightful!

This post is a must as this cake provides an unassumingly GOOD recipe, which I feel obliged to pass on. Not only a Jamie Oliver recipe (and therefore quality!) but most importantly, the wow effect I got after taking a bite of this cake, was big…and made me reach for many more bites J

Did you know?…
The Madeira Cake is sometimes mistakenly thought to originate from the Madeira Islands; however, that is not the case as it was instead named after the Madeira wine, which was popular in England at the time and was often served with the cake.

Simple, quick and perfect for your coffee or tea in the afternoon (or any time of the day really!).
