WP_P1090249.jpgServe 8-10, prep time 10 minutes, cooking time 1 hour

12oz self-raising flour
6 free-range eggs
12oz margarine
12oz caster sugar
1/2 tsp baking powder
Zest of a lemon

10 tbsp of icing sugar
Juice of a lemon
The zest of a lemon
1 tsp of yellow food colouring
4 squares of plain chocolate
Preheat the oven to 180 degrees. Cream the sugar, eggs and margarine in a food processor for five minutes. Sift the flour and baking powder into a separate bowl. Add the zest of a lemon and combine the ingredients for a further five minutes. Meanwhile, with a pastry brush thoroughly grease the Bundt cake tin. Remove the mixture from the food processor, pour into the tin. Tap the tin, so the mixture is evenly spread and place in the oven. While the cake is cooking, prepare the first layer of icing. Add four tablespoons of icing sugar to a bowl. Add, a few drops of lemon juice and mix, keep adding lemon juice until the icing is smooth in texture. After one hour, using a sharp blade, check the cake is cooked by pushing it into the sponge, if blade should be clean it’s done. Remove the cake from the oven and allow to cool for five minutes. Next, turn the cake onto a wire rack and cool. When cooled, spoon over the icing from the outside into the centre. Sprinkle with lemon zest and allow to set while you prepare the yellow icing. Add the remainder of the icing sugar to a bowl with one teaspoon of yellow food colouring, mix into a paste, adding a few drops of lemon juice until the mixture is smooth. Repeat the icing process, spooning from outside to the centre. Leave to set while you melt the chocolate. Add some water to a small pan and bring to the boil. Break the chocolate squares into a small glass bowl and place over the pan. When the chocolate is melted, remove from the heat and stand for a few minutes. Using the same technique, drizzle the sponge with chocolate. Leave to cool in the fridge for an hour, then serve.
