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.

dessert or with a cuppa
1hour 10 mins
- 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
