This is my father’s absolute favourite! The best way we can find to avoid the seeds all dropping to the bottom of the cake is to use a Madeira Cake base. Give it a shot, the caraway seeds give a delicious flavour with a touch of texture.

You Will Need:

100 g butter

1 c flour

3 eggs

3 tbsp milk

1 ½ c flour

1 tsp cream of tartar

½ tsp baking soda

2 dessert spoon caraway seeds


Heat oven to 200? C

Grease cake tin

Cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy.

Beat in eggs one at a time.

Add sifted dry ingredients and mix thoroughly.

Lastly, add caraway seeds and mix to combine, pour mixture into prepared tin.

Turn oven back to 175? C and bake for 25 – 30 mins or until golden and skewer comes out clean.

Cool in tin for five mins then remove from tin and cool on wire rack.

When cool, ice with lemon icing and decorate with lemon peel.
