Sugar Crusted Lemon Cake with Rachael Thomas

 Sugar Crusted Lemon Cake

This is one of my favourite cakes – to make and to eat. All the crunchy sugar!

For the sponge

100g of softened butter

175g of caster sugar

175g of self-raising flour

1 teaspoon of baking powder

2 eggs

Zest of 1 lemon

For the Sugar crust topping

125 sugar

Juice of 2 lemons


Preheat the oven to 180°C

Line a 20cm cake tin

Mix all the ingredients for the sponge together and whisk for about 2 minutes or until a light creamy mixture. Then pour into the prepared tin and bake for about 30 minutes.

For the topping, mix the sugar and lemon juice together and pour over the sponge whilst still hot. Once cooled, remove from the tin and enjoy!

This is mine and it’s delicious.

The Greek's Outrageous Marriage Deal

A deal to reclaim his wife…
Becomes so much more!

When Athena returns to their marital home in Crete, billionaire Kostas Kyriakou seizes the opportunity to reunite with his wife and have an heir for the empire he has created from nothing. It’s the only deal he’s prepared to consider. After all, heady passion and hot desire had never been lacking in their short marriage.
Athena has promised her father, who is again battling illness, that she will return to Athens with her estranged husband. Seeing the man she’d loved so completely, and hearing his outrageous demands to have his child, forces her to face all the pain and heartache of losing her mother as a young girl.
Time together, acting out a marriage reunited, brings back all that explosive passion, but can they truly share who they are this time and mend the marriage for real?
