Could we get some cake? Or at least the recipe/s?

You're always welcome for cake anonymous.. but the recipe for lemon & aniseed cake is super easy... mix butter (200gms) with golden caster sugar (100- 200gms) then add a third of four whisked eggs and a third of 100gms plain flour (plus 1 tsp baking powder).. next third, next third etc...add the zest of 1-2 grated lemons and some aniseeds.. into oven at around 160- 170... it'll be about 30 mins, until a knife comes out clean..

As its cooling mix the juice of 1-2 lemons with sugar and aniseeds, heat gently for a few mins, then drizzle over the cake (its also good with cloves)

Happy baking!
