Madeira Cake Recipe:

Madeira Cake Recipe is one recipe you must try.

I love madeira cake. It is one of my favourite cakes and I am so happy to be sharing this recipe with you.

Madeira cake is surprisingly easy.

I particularly love it when it is still warm.

Sometimes I have it with butter on and other times I have the madeira cake with nothing on it.

The madeira cake is soft and fluffy inside and has a wonderful crispy texture on the outside.

Texture and flavour is amazing with this Madeira cake recipe and of course it is so simple to make.

You can bake a Madeira cake in any cake tin but the usual way to bake it would be in a loaf tin.

In my video, I show me making a few mini ones by placing them in a muffin baking tray. They were really tasty too.

  • 180g butter – room temperature
  • 180g caster sugar (can use granulated)
  • 3 eggs
  • 250g self raising flour (U.S. all purpose flour (plain flour) and 3 tsp baking powder)
  • 40ml milk

Madeira Cake – Method & Instructions


Cut butter into squares

Cream the butter and sugar with an electric whisk (or a stand mixer) or by hand with a wooden spoon

Add one egg at a time into the creamed butter and sugar mix

Mix in each egg with a mixer or by hand

Sieve the four and fold it into the cake mixture

It will be very thick at this stage so add 40ml of milk (3 tbsp) it will then become easier to work with

Line a loaf tin with grease proof paper or just grease the tin (paper just makes it easier to lift cake out)

Pour mixture into the tin

Bake in the oven for 60 minutes on Gas 4 or 180°C

When ready to eat cut into slices with a bread knife


Enjoy your Madeira cake

Butternut Squash & Sweet Potato Soup

Watch on YouTube: Click Here.


  • 300g butter
  • 200g soft brown sugar
  • 4 tbsp golden syrup (or maple syrup or honey)
  • 1 tin condensed milk
  • 500g porridge oats
  • 1 or 2 bars of chocolate

Flapjacks – Method & Instructions


Pre-heat oven – Gas 5 / 190°C / 375 °F

Melt butter in a pot

Add sugar to the melted butter

Add syrup (stand your spoon in a cup of hot water so the spoon gets hot. It helps syrup come off the spoon)

Add condensed milk

Cook on a medium heat

When it starts to boil cook for 1 minute

In a large bowl put in porridge oats

Pour your toffee mixture into the bowl of porridge oats and mix well with a wooden spoon making sure all porridge oats are covered with the mixture

Put greaseproof paper onto a baking tin

Pour flapjack mixture into baking tin and spread to about 2 inches thick

Place in the oven for 15 – 20 minutes

When it comes out the oven cut into squares of individual portions while it is still warm

Let the flapjacks cool for at least 15 minutes before eating

You can of course eat the flapjacks like this or you can put melted chocolate on them

Melt your chocolate of choice on a bain-marie (pot of hot water with bowl over the hot water and place chocolate in bowl)

Once the chocolate has melted use a tablespoon to spread the chocolate on the flapjacks

See the YouTube video for ideas of how to decorate your flapjacks with chocolate

If you have the patience at this stage you can let chocolate harden but if like me you can’t wait just eat and enjoy as they are

Have fun making your flapjacks and enjoy eating them
