Personally, I am a gin and tonic girl. I like nothing better than relaxing with a g&t at the end of the working day. So I have been really looking forward to having a go at making a gin and tonic cake using some NFTH gooseberry gin liqueur. Follow the recipe below and you will not be disappointed with the results. The cake is very moist and flavoursome. As it is made with natural yogurt the cake will keep for a while in a sealed container.
G & T Cake
225g butter, at room temperature
275g golden caster sugar
Finely grated zest and juice from 2 lemons
3 large beaten eggs
210g natural yogurt
330g self raising flour
100ml NFTH gooseberry gin liqueur
100ml tonic water
150g granulated sugar, plus 2 tbsp for sprinkling
Preheat oven at 160/140 fan. Grease 150cm x 30cm cake tin and line with baking parchment.
Put the butter and golden caster sugar into a large mixing bowl. Add the lemon zest and then mix by hand or whisk together.
