This is a great old-fashioned tea cake – and perfectly presentable as a dessert with a big serving of ice cream. The trick is to make the lemon icing as fresh and zingy as possible, so try and buy nice thick-skinned organic leafy lemons instead of the waxed and sprayed everyday ones. I used to make this cake for my nan and she would serve it to her whist-drive team – one of them liked it so much they choked on their false teeth and my nan's boyfriend had to perform the Heimlich manoeuvre!

BUYING SUSTAINABLY SOURCED FISH
Buying sustainably sourced fish means buying fish that has been caught without endangering the levels of fish stocks and with the protection of the environment in mind. Wild fish caught in areas where stocks are plentiful are sustainably sourced, as are farmed fish that are reared on farms proven to cause no harm to surrounding seas and shores.
When buying either wild or farmed fish, ask whether it is sustainably sourced. If you're unable to obtain this information, don't be afraid to shop elsewhere – only by shopping sustainably can we be sure that the fantastic selection of fish we enjoy today will be around for future generations.
