My Mum’s Lambada Cake

Finally I present to you a recipe I promised long ago. The Lambada Cake is a creamy traybake with vanilla sponge, butter cookies, orange pudding, and buttercream, covered with chocolate.

Since she’s been baking this cake for many years, she has mastered this recipe so you get a creamy but refreshing dessert. The cake looks demanding but it’s not. I suggest you first prepare the buttercream because it needs to cool, but other layers don’t consume much time and […]
