The Lazy Sourdough Bakery

We love this cake! It may well be the family weekend cake for years to come. It is lemony, moist (yes I went there) and gets better over a few days...is it even possible?

It is also the perfect way to refresh and feed your starter if you need to do that to get your lazy loaf on!

We are pretty sure you will enjoy this one. If you haven't joined our course yet, it is time! Come on in...the bakery is baking now!

Preheat oven to 180°C and butter a 24cm ring cake tin generously. This cake needs to come out of the tin easily so just go for it.


Place starter, milk, sugar, EVOO, eggs, vanilla, lemon oil, zest and juice into the Thermomix bowl and blend 6 sec/speed 6.


Add remaining cake ingredients and mix 22 sec/Interval/dough setting. Finish combining with the aid of a spatula if necessary.


Scrape into prepared tin and tap gently on the bench to level the top.


Bake 40 minutes until springing back when you touch it in the middle of the largest part of the cake. It should also be golden.


Cool in the tin on a wire rack, completely before removing.


To make the glaze place the sugar, butter and lemon zest into the Thermomix bowl and blend 10 sec/speed 10. Add lemon oil, and lemon juice and blend until well combined. Drizzle over cold cake and decorate with edible flowers if using. This cake improves in flavour over a few days.
