Madeira Cake

Remember, I told you that I was making holiday goodies with a taste of home? One such cake on my list was Madeira cake. We used to get it at Monginis Bakery, Mumbai. I googled it and Wiki says that it's a traditional English sponge cake accompanied by Madeira wine.  I found several recipes too, but I really was looking for the simplest recipe starting from ready made cake mix. Here's what I did -

Madeira Cake
Citrus Flavored Sponge Cake
1 packet Betty Crocker Yellow cake Mix
(water, oil and eggs as mentioned in the instructions of the packet)

2 tsp fresh lemon zest (make sure there is no white part)
1 small lemon pudding mix (I used Jello)
1/4 cup ricotta cheese

1. Mix yellow cake mix with lemon flavored pudding mix.
2. Add remaining ingredients as mentioned on the back of the packet.
3. Prepare batter.
4. Pour in 2 big or 4 mini loaf pans (greased).
5. Preheat oven 350 F. Bake for 45-60 minutes tor till properly baked.

Note -
1. It took longer time to bake. So keep an eye after about 30 minutes so the cake is not burnt or remains undercooked.
2. You can add vanilla flavored pudding mix and few drops of lemon essence.
