I forgot to add the wine vinegar and my finished cake was a bit crumbly, I wonder if that was why...? I wondered whether a couple of eggs would help though.

Super cake, I used the lemon marmalade that I made last month. Found the recipe easy to follow and the finished cake was yummy. Have had requests for another one!

For the main part I followed the recipe. However, I didn't have white wine vinegar so I added red wine vinegar instead, which worked just as well. If you are short of preparation time and would like to rustle up a delicious cake this is one to try.
