The Royal Lemon, Pistachio and Elderflower Cake

Well, it would be rude not to… in homage to Prince Harry and Meghan Markle‘s wedding on 19thMay, the London-based Violet Bakery is making them a Lemon and Elderflower cake, ‘incorporating the bright flavours of spring’.

To celebrate the occasion ourselves, Penny has come up with her own, gluten-free, take on the royal cake. For the whole month of May, her lemon, pistachio and elderflower cake will be available in our Yurt cake cabinet.

Reassuringly easy, having creamed the butter and sugar, the rest of the ingredients all go in at once. With the addition of the elderflower cordial on top, the result is lovely and moist.
