About this Bake

This is a gin and tonic cake. It is perfect for the end of summer with a G&T. The sponge includes lime and lemon zest and tonic water, giving it aeration, and the centre includes gin candied lime slices.

Top tip

Always cream the butter until white before adding the icing sugar. Always lick the bowl before washing up and don't let your cake go to waste - if there are leftovers, deliver slices to your neighbours.
