Dr Oetker Tarte au Citron

Dr Oetker Tarte au Citron

Lemon Cake Mix
There comes a time, there comes a day, when your toddler demands that you bake a cake. A day when you don't particularly feel like baking one. And you do not necessarily wish to feed said toddler a shop-bought one.

Time to reach for a cake mix that has been sitting in the back of your kitchen cupboard, waiting for just such an emergency. Dr Oetker to the rescue! In the form of a zesty lemon cake mix.

3 eggs, 125 grams butter and 32 minutes later, there sits my golden-baked tarte au citron. Ready for a dusting of icing sugar. Which, by the way, came with the cake mix.

And there you have it. An enormous lemon cake, enough to feed 8 people. How long it survives in the C house is anybody's guess!

  3. I've never tried a packet mix, mainly because I resent paying for someone else to weigh and package ingredients I have in my cupboard already and charge a fortune for the privilege - and often add a few preservatives in as well. However sometimes you can't beat convenience and it does look pretty good!

    1. It is like I said. For times when everybody fancies a slice, but nobody wants to actually bake one!

  13. Mmmm....scrummy! I have reached for a packet mix on many an occasion, despite being a fairly competent baker. Perfect for those days when you don't want to weigh and measure (and wash up half the utensils in the kitchen) but you still want to bake - and eat cake!!
