Actually, the recipe is from Nigella's mother in law. According to her, this is the best version she has ever tried. Knowing Nigella from her appearances in Asian Food Channel (AFC), I know that I can trust her taste. Nigella is known for her cheerful and fun approach towards cooking. I love watching her on AFC, you'll never get bored with her cooking.
And to clear my curiosity, before I start with the recipe, I did some goggling on Madeira Cake.
Wiki explained that Madeira is a cake that has a firm yet light texture. It is eaten with tea or for breakfast and is traditionally flavoured with lemon. Madeira cake is very similar to a pound cake or yellow cake.I love Madeira Cake. It is really as said, with a firm yet light texture and a hint of lemon flavour. My hubby love it! Me too! I can't wait to have a few more slices [again] for my breakfast tomorrow.
(Please forgive me for the bad lighting on my photograph above. I just baked it this evening and my kitchen light is not bright enough for a good shot. Usually I depend on natural lighting for good shots.)
