To prepare a Madeira cake all you require is 175g/6oz butter, at room temperature, 175g/6oz caster sugar, 3 large eggs, 250g/9oz self-raising flour, approximately 3 tbsp full-cream milk, 1 lemon, zest only and 1-2 thin pieces of candied citron or lemon peel, to decorate.

First preheat the oven at 180C/350F/Gas 4. Lubricate an 18cm/7in round cake container, line the bottom with greaseproof paper and grease the paper. Then mix in the butter and sugar collectively in a bowl until it turns pale and fluffy. Beat in the eggs, and continue to beat the mixture well and add a tablespoon of the flour along with the last egg to avoid the contents from curdling. Next, sieve the flour in, with milk. Fold in the lemon zest. Spoon in the contents into the ready container and flippantly level the top. Bake for 30 minutes.
