Best-Ever Moist Lemon Cake Plus Win An Italian Stovetop Espresso Maker

By  |  0 Comments


This cake is not only super-easy to make but includes a secret ingredient that gives it an extra special kick. If you’ve been baking for a while you’ll probably know this trick it’s been around longer than cake mixes. But if you’re a beginner baker then you’ll probs be surprised to find out that this unexpected kitchen staple can take just about any cake from zero to hero in an instant.

Back in the day if your chocolate cakes came out a tad dry the solution was to add some mayonnaise to the mix. Yep sounds crazy but it works every single time – promise. So when I got sent four fab new flavours of Best Foods Mayonnaise  I knew exactly what I wanted to whip up first – my favourite Lemon Cake. Only this time I substituted standard mayo for the Best Foods Mayonnaise with a zing of Lemon and the result is magnifico! 

See how easy it is to create this delicious cake below and scroll down for the recipe and for your chance to win a 6-cup Bialetti Stovetop Espresso Maker from Milly’s Kitchen.
