1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp mixed spice

[hd]For the topping[/hd]
200g Philadelphia
50g icing sugar
finely grated zest of 1 lemon


  • Preheat the oven to 190C/375F/Gas 5. Grease and line the base of a 20cm springform cake tin.
  • Cream together the egg yolks, sugar and melted butter or margarine. Stir in 2 tbsp warm water. Place the remaining cake ingredients in a bowl, make a well in the centre, add the egg mixture and beat thoroughly.
  • Whisk the egg whites in a bowl until standing in soft peaks. Fold carefully into the cake mixture. Spoon the mixture into the prepared tin and bake for 45-50 minutes or until a skewer inserted in the centre comes out clean. Allow to cool slightly, then turn out and cool completely on a wire rack.
  • Cream together the Philly and icing sugar until soft and creamy. Stir in most of the lemon zest and spread over the cake. Decorate with a little more grated lemon zest if required.
